So there is a wonderful site that I check out regularly. This site shows the how to achieve the look that they did in the images with their edits. I am a big lightroom user, so I love the many different freebies that they make and share for lightroom and photoshop. The CoffeeShop blog is an amazing for the new to photoshop or lightroom users, even the advanced users. I would say that I fully fully fully recommend this site for usage.
Her work is amazing, I highly recommend to check her work out.
Composites are an ever learning process. There is just something about doing them that you constantly learn from. I have done a fair share of them. In each one I continue to get better and better. I have to say it is about the practice when it comes to the composites. It is easy to destroy the image. Adding in can make it or break it. For this image, I had a look I was going for then I lost the look I was going for. I then had to come up with something else and started brain storming again on what I wanted to achieve with the composite, with this precious curious child. I then found it. This image compiled together speaks so many things of his for curiousness.
This is an image that I took for my final in Portraiture. I have to say that I actually enjoyed that class. With this image I used christmas lights behind the white background. I also went with a different editing style than my normal. It came out pretty well. My little model is not the biggest fan of sitting still long enough for me to get a good session in, however I can mangage to get something here and there. This is one of my favorites of Mr. Max.
