Multiplicity Portrait

Posted on Apr 10, 2014 by Mark Finlayson Last Activity on Apr 10, 2014

This task allows you to put yourself (or another person) in the same image a number of times. The concept was used by Australian photographer Michael Cook to create his series "Majority Rules". It's a lot of fun and is limited only by your imagination. I use it with my Year 9 students and the results are usually amazing.

Larry's Face - Exploring digital deception and having a bit of fun

Posted on Mar 10, 2014 by Mark Finlayson Last Activity on Mar 10, 2014

Larry's Face is a website by Bruce Goldfarb dedicated to placing his brother's face (Larry) into as many images as possible. It's a bit of fun, but providers an excellent lead in to discussing digital deception and hoax photos. The site provides many excellent links, although not all still work. I use this task as a precursor to my Hoax Photo one ( with my Year 10 Photography students.

Creating A Hoax Photo

Posted on Mar 10, 2014 by Mark Finlayson Last Activity on Apr 10, 2014

This exercise is about creating a photographic hoax photo. It includes some scope to examine famous examples and discuss the ethics of such practices when they are used in the wrong way. The task uses Photoshop (or Elements) and is about creating composite images and using the eraser tool. The resultant image can be as simple or complicated as you want, and allows for students to work at their own level.
