In lieu of a video I decided to put up another behind the scenes tours of one of my composite pieces. I’m going to give you a sense of how this poster came together. This isn’t a tutorial per say, but rather a tour of the file for those that enjoy working in Photoshop.
The image is essentially a composite of five shots:
- My son in bed with a book
- A plastic dinosaur my son has
- A plastic dragon he has
- An old shot of the moon I had in my collection
- A picture of jelly fish I shot this summer at Ripley’s Aquarium in Toronto
Now naturally I did a bit more than just compositing/Photoshopping the shots together, but I will hit some of the highlights of the piece.
In this brief behind the scenes I will show you some of the secrets behind the piece seen above. I can’t necessarily do a tutorial on it because it wasn’t a recipe achieved by a series of steps, but rather this piece was the product of some experimentation, failed attempts, and then just letting my inner artist loose. At a certain point I can’t say what I did specifically, but upon review of the PSD I wanted to offer a behind the scenes of this piece.
