With the camera on tripod, I used the timer to capture the five arms and an empty background shot. I placed a coin on one of the steps to remind myself where the center of the body should go, and to help me position my arms appropriately.
After all the potos were taken, I proceeded to use photoshops pen tool to create selections then masked each layer.
Once masked, I went back under maximum zoom and used a soft fine brush to paint away telltale ghosting, or paint back portions I had ben sloppy one.
