I was introduced to Compositing Photographic Elements into “Artfully Combined Elements: by Aaron Nace during a Compositing 101 course that I purchased through CreativeLive, out of Seattle. I find processes interesting so I’ll share how I built this composite image.
Needing subjects for my creative endeavor, I enlisted one of my sons who is a poet along with Izzy, our dog and Odie, our cat to take part in my composite.
My concept involved levitation so we worked through the concept, building the photo in my living room, which luckily has beautiful natural light.
I chose to do a stationary composite using my tripod and shooting everything stationary and doing a process of masking in Photoshop.
