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.
Next step is to do the fun, crazy, and wild shoot I had in mind. I make sure the lighting will work with the stock shot I have on file. Lighting can make or break the illusion. Here is one shot from the crazy shoot I did.
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.
