eye on color wrote in post #14536009
This is a graduation gift, I gave to this young Lady, she is like a goddaughter. The main image is from me doing her Sr. Pictures and the inserts are from her Prom shoot and some of her playing BB. I was wondering what you all thought of doing something like this and what I could do to make something like this better. Also is there any software or tool in software I could use to blur the background image behind the grate more.
i printed it 16 x 20
Thanks for looking and helping.
Thanks for sharing -- I'm sure the young lady was thrilled at the thought you put into this. Compositing is a tricky concept to get good at. There's several threads on here devoted to it and I'm currently reading a great book by Matt Kloskowski called "Photoshop Compositing Secrets" so I can improve mine more. There are several keys you want to remember that being depth of the image -- for example, when I do mine, I'll put images in at different opacities and at different levels -- so like in your example, I myself would have made the main image of her in the pink dress almost the length of the poster, then blend the others in around it with the pictures at different angles etc. Notice how the eyes in the pictures in your example are almost all parallel to each other -- if you vary that, it grabs the viewer's attention more. I'm a heavy PS user so maybe there's other software, but if you want to be good at doing these, just keep doing them, search for examples and become proficient in photoshop. Hope that helps.
