Hi there! Well the first thing I did was set up two back drops. One was white and one was a very dark color. Next I gathered as many subjects as possible and photographed them in front of each back drop. I did this to make sure that I would have a variety of dark and lighter pictures to create the shadows and highlights of MLK JR. Next I searched for a picture mosaic program online and uploaded both my base picture and ALL the other pictures I took. The program pieced all my pictures together (which took a few hours for the program to do). I did this a few years ago so I'm sure there are much more efficient ways to do it now.
Looks amazing! Love it!

What program did you use for this? Is there even such a program where you can just insert photos and then say and use a 'base' photo to make the computer use all of them as much as it needs to to make a photo like this?
Just curious but if you are a magician and do not want to reveal your secrets, then fine, just asking as a question not a demand.

I am a magician but I'll share my secrets :)
I used a mosaic program that I found online. It gave me a month free trial. All I had to do was upload the "base" photo and then upload each of the individual photos and tell it how many times I wanted them to repeat. It took the program seriously a few hours to do it but it came out pretty nice! I want to eventually make a physical one out of wallet sized pictures. It will take fooorrreevverr though.

Sounds good, does this mystery program have a name?

I really can't remember what it was called, but if you google picture mosaic program I'm sure you'll find one in no time :)
