I do quite a bit of composite work, especially with Christmas and greeting card sessions during the holidays.
I recently took an on-line webinar class with Judy Reinford, M. Artist, M. Photographer. I love Judy's style and work and she is from my home state. We were given a number of stock photos to incorporate into a composite. Below is my composite from the class.
A little over a year ago, a friend lost her beloved dog to illness. She had a rough digital image taken with her phone and asked if I could possibly make it into a frameable piece of art. I ended up doing a digital painting of the photo, using textures to improve some of the areas that were degraded and underexposed in the original picture. The pup was laying on a patterned blanket, and I replaced it with a suitcase to streamline the image and draw more attention to him. The resulting image is below, with the blanket removed and the top of the suitcase in view.
To see more composite work in the group this week, start the blog circle off with Jo Lyons Photography, the down-to-earth dog loving photographer for cherished dogs of Sydney, Central Coast, Newcastle and the Great Lakes Region of NSW.
I'm off to some winter events this weekend. Check my Facebook page for resulting photos later in the week. Enjoy!
