traveler BTS

here is a quick behind the scenes on my latest picture ‘traveler’. just a simple littlefolk, but here is a bit of what went into making it.

here is the picture I started with:


I then took a bunch of extension pictures of the surrounding area:

merged them all together:

then I cropped and fuzzed the edges of all the pictures, and here is the background done!:

I cut out the background, and placed her into the composition, here is a close-up of with and without shadows:

then I added the color correction:

and thats it! the final picture (bigger on flickr):

as I sad above, just a simple shot, but think it came out pretty well mainly owing the the incredible light and colors this time of year.

a lot more to come, but probably not very soon as what aliza and I are working on at the moment is by far our most ambitious and exciting project to date.  stay tuned!
