Evaluation

At first I was really unsure of my inspirational photographers for this project. I chose two very talented composite photographers and was very unsure of how they would link to my own work. It took me a while, but eventually I realised that although out work was completely different we shared similar methods and styles….

Lighting

In the studio we used various forms of lighting and experimented a lot. In the light studio we used the boom to elevate a large soft box. This acted as natural sunlight and worked really well. I do regret not using a reflector in the light studio with my closer shots such as the midshot…

Pinterest Inspiration

These pins all inspired my to use an outdoor location for my shoot. The various rich colours are beautiful and very captivating. I hope to play with colours in my composites and produce some sort of a similar captivating experience for my audience. I’m contemplating adding a brightly coloured prop to add a pop to…

Midshot, Final Image

The last of my composites, I feel this one shows off all of my newly attained skills. One of my new tricks is visible in this composite, my selection is a lot better. The model’s hair includes her fly aways and is not just a solid line around her head. However, using this new method…

Portrait, Final Composite

After hours of scrolling through my many thumbnails, trying to find two images that would complement one another, eventually I was successful. Probably the worst of my three composites. It took a lot of time and consideration as the lighting and colours were not compatible at all. To try and match the lighting I dulled the image,…

Full Length, Final Composite

Being the first of the three composites I attempted, I found it a lot more difficult than I initially anticipated. I started by selecting the model and copying her onto my chosen background. I found the selection process tedious, I struggled a lot until I remembered quick mask. I then went on to resize the…

Studio Shots (Foreground)

Shot in both the light and dark studio, I used my friend Alannah as a model to bring a new face into the mix. After only using natural light in my location shots, in the light studio I only used one light, the boom and a big soft box. This light acted as the sun…

Location Shots (Background)

My background thumbnails were shot on a mild afternoon at Long Buckby train station. An open access platform with a car park on one side and countryside on the other. The late afternoon brought perfect lighting to the shoot with no harsh lights or difficult highlights.

Photographic Composite Photographers

Both of my chosen photographic composite photographers are extremely talented in their field. Their abilities to bring two images together and make them one is flawless. Both have different perspectives and ideas on the subject and show very different techniques and insight. Unfortunately neither of the photographers link directly to my work and ideas, however they are brilliant examples of photographic composites.
