A lemniscate is any of several figure-eight or ∞ shaped curves. The word comes from the Latin "lēmniscātus" meaning "decorated with ribbons", from the Greek λημνίσκος meaning ribbons. In astronomy, an analemma (from Greek ἀνάλημμα analēmma "support") is a diagram showing the deviation of the Sun from its mean motion in the sky, as viewed from a fixed location on the Earth. An analemma can be traced by plotting the position of the Sun as viewed from a fixed position on Earth at the same clock time every day for an entire year, or by fixed camera taking time lapse pictures throughout one year. The resulting curve resembles a long, slender figure-eight with one lobe much larger than the other, known as a lemniscate of Bernoulli.

Identities of the models are composed in camera and NOT by separate images edited in post production and/or photoshop.
