Love this image of multiple you. We did this in class this year where I am studying, however I only did 5 of me in the hallway of my home showing the multiple facets of me in my life. This is a great setting and well executed. Love the expression on your face. Hope you win.

This was the winner IMO, not only does it illustrate the creativeness of Photoshop its a great composition. You have executed this superbly placing your friend well throughout the shot and the wardrobe has worked really well displaying all the stereotypes as you mentioned in the details. A brilliant piece of work, well done.

I love this one of my favorites. I am a bartender as well and the look on the bartenders face just tells my story, and the characters are just like the people in the bar as well. So perfect.

Behind The Lens

Location
I shot this composite at a local bar and used a friend as all of the subjects. 17 single images all masked into one.
Time
It was about 3:00am. We had to wait for the bar to close and clean so that was the only time we could do it.
Lighting
I used ambient light because I felt that if I started supplementing light in certain places it wouldn't look very natural. Thinking about it after a couple of years though there are definitely some tricks I've learned from then that I could have used to enhance the lighting.
Equipment
Nikon D600 and Nikon 24-70mm f2.8 mounted on a tripod. No external flashes.
Inspiration
I was a bartender for many years and the thought came to me one day while I was dining out. I then compiled all of the stereotypical bar guests that I've grown to love and loathe.
Editing
A ton of post processing based on the nature of the image. 17 individual shots all masked and layered in Photoshop. Even the picture on the television is my own shot from an NHL game I attended. It was the very first time I had tried something of this nature and was incredibly tedious. It took hours to mask in all the bar guests. While moving some of them over this way or that way every so slightly. I probably added an hour or two to the total time because I never named my layers properly.
In my camera bag
Nikon D750/D600. Nikon 50mm 1.8D/24-70mm f2.8/70-200mm f4/16-35mm f4. One Elinchrom RX4 with a reflector and Softbox with a light stand. Manfrotto tripod. Tons of extra batteries and memory cards.
Feedback
It's an incredibly time consuming process to create an image like this. However, in the end, it's always worth the time you put into it because the possibilities are endless. Things to keep an eye on: When shooting, make sure you only choose one focal point for the entire picture. Use the same lighting in every shot. In post, use layers and label them properly! Happy Shooting!!!
