Neat.

Very cool. OC - what's wrong with the flickr links? They're pretty comprehensive...

Totally, dude. I was reading this novel the other day, and I was all like "Oh, Microsoft Word and Quark. Hooray?"

The SA goons have been having threads with 'shops like this for years, including some truly incredible animated ones. I wonder if this guy's a goon.

This guy takes the idea an runs with in very creepy and awesome directions.

It's a very cool concept and something that I might do once I get a good camera.

Speaking of SA, I saw a spectacular animated gif that had the guy standing in front of the camera while he came up behind himself and bashed his head in, after which he dropped to the ground and his clone was standing in front of the camera. Repeat on infinite loop.

That's one of the ones I was talking about. There've been few threads with dozens more like that. Very cool.

It's more impressive, sorta, when done with a lens attachment.

Because redundancy and multiplicity is, in the case of this thread, just so goddamn meta, I offer you the non-Flickr delights of Martin Liebscher.

Liebscher's been doing this for a long time now, and they are printed big,sometimes up to 4 meters high. The effect is quite different when the aggregate of people is bigger than you are.

It may or may not be worth looking at the others in relationship to Liebscher's work, in that he labors very hard to get rather complex compositions, and carefully chosen subjects. When they work, you laugh, until you realize it's not exactly funny, or maybe it's the other way around. One thing the work is NOT about is Photoshop.

It's in German, and the navigation's wonky, so I recommend using the number icons over on the left to navigate, if you are inclined. Don't miss the genuine 1998 Guiness Book World Record for the Longest Group Photo in the World.

these vanity pieces are clever, but not very interesting after you've seen a few.

My buddy kermix did this once.

Don't ask me how I remembered where (when, technically) that was. The mind of an eideteker is a frightening place, sometimes. Someone hold me.

Most of this stuff is just technique taken to the extreme, but the Anthony Goicolea link that lychee posted has some great stuff in it. Thanks!
