Fun with composites

Sometimes I have an idea for a photo shoot, but not all the elements at hand to make it happen. This is where composites are wonderful!  All year long, I carry some sort of camera with me. When I see something cool, but have no use for it currently, I’ll take a photo and catalog it for later. Like this image below.

The next step would be to composite everything together.  This process can take a long time. I’m sort of picky about what I do. I’ve changed color, added in a frame, dirtied it up a bit, and dramatized it.
