How to Do a Creative Composition:
I’ve really come to love Photoshop over the last year or so. Don’t get me wrong, I still love Lightroom for its ability to handle mass amounts of photos at once, but Photoshop is a beast of its own. I decided to put it to the test with a creative composition for one of my classes and in total the end product consists of about 13 individual pictures and a ton of adjustment layers.
I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it forever. There are perks to being a mom of all girls. I will honestly ALWAYS have a willing model at hand and this time it was my oldest daughter. She’s 9-years-old and JUMPS at the chance to wear makeup. 🙂 She told me that she wanted me to turn her into a mermaid, so I did my best. The trick to blending a bunch of pictures together is to use a hue/saturation adjustment layer for each image and then to use a color lookup adjustment layer towards the end to bring it all together. I’ve included all of the photos used in this creative composition below. I’m in love with how the end photo turned out. Here are the links to the photos that I downloaded from the internet.
