Composite Imagery Day 1. I really enjoyed working in Photoshop during October using the Wacom graphics tablet. I decided a couple days ago that I would try to use Photoshop more often for the daily designs and at that time I realized that creating images by compositing multiple photos or other images would be a good exercise. So for the next several days, or perhaps the remainder of November I will be compositing images to create one image.
This image was created using three photos. The upper third of the image is a back lit shot of tree branches. The the middle layer is a photo of a wolf’s den taken at the National Zoo in Washington DC. The lower third is a close up of water, blended with a flipped copy of the wolf’s den, to create a feeling of reflection. Finally, I used a photo of a rough concrete wall a subtle overlay to give a uniform feeling of being weathered or grungy. I look forward to reading your impressions as I would like to compare them with the impression I was going for when I began compositing. I would also be happy to get suggestions on future composites or other projects. See you all tomorrow! ~Sean.
