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.Emily-Johnson-Creative-CompositionEmily-Johnson-Creative-Composition-1 I’m in love with how the end photo turned out. Here are the links to the photos that I downloaded from the internet.
