Challenge: Multiple Exposure Self-Portrait (Extended Editing)
Collection: 2021
Date: Oct 16, 2021
Date Uploaded: Oct 17, 2021

I think this was the closest I cut getting this submitted: 8:59pm, the rollover kicked in the second I updated the title. THEN I noticed a few spots I missed editing - dammit. Well I fixed it:
' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/25000-29999/28742/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1265108.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/25000-29999/28742/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1265108.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

Wow! My second highest score! Thank you for all the votes and comments!

Yes, my garage gym that my oldest son and I have been putting together since August of last year. More details and backstory on the image below...
' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/25000-29999/28742/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1265283.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/25000-29999/28742/120/Copyrighted_Image_Reuse_Prohibited_1265283.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

Regarding the process of putting this together - I started with about 3+ hours to submit. I had several change of clothes, some wigs, arm tattoo sleeves and assorted things, many I never used. I set the camera in a good fixed position and then with one outfit, went to each of the different machines and acted like I was lifting or coaching. I did this with each outfit, each station and then put together the ones that made the most sense and where I was mostly visible. The part in the back where I am looking at my watch is me, waiting for me to get out of the sauna and sauna me is saying "just two more minutes" ;-) With about 8 minutes to go, I realized I left a big space right up front so I rushed down to the garage and shot one more of me standing there saying "pfft, look at these jokers!" Got back and edited that in just in the nick of time.

previous comment was to make you laugh. This comment is to tell you that this IS IS IS IS what DPC is all about.
Awesome. I've done a few shots with this concept but this one was worth showing my kid to remind him what creativity combined with humor and know-how can do! Love it.

real laughter here opening this ..
LOL are not just words on a page . !! ..
this is BRILLIANT . and i cant get over how many Kens there are .
i thought one was enough in this world . but it seems i was wrong ..
what i like a lot is how much 'trouble' you went to to get this final image . how many changes of clothes . hats . expressions . and more .
i think my fav Ken is the guy in the very back looking like he's getting ready for another wardrobe change .. oh and the guy who's going .. look at those idiots behind me . !!! .. very cool .. :)
