Recently, when I was with my family at a swimming pool, I had the opportunity to use the fast shutter rate of my DSLR camera to take some quick photographs of them. I took the photographs specifically with the intention of practicing a Photoshop technique called motion composition or motion multiplication. The idea is that you make a composite photograph of a subject that is in motion by combining various copies of the subject in different positions. Enjoy!

Paul belly flops swan dives. This one is actually worth viewing a little bigger.

Overall, I'm quite pleased with the results of my first attempt at this technique. I will have to keep my eyes out for other subjects apt for this process.
