The art of crafting a photo composite

thanks to +Mark Johnson. watch the tutorial (below).
 
The art of crafting a photo composite that delights your creative soul is a multi-part process.  It all begins with developing an idea.  I often find inspiration in children's books and movie posters, but we can also find it on book covers, in stories we read, on album covers, by scouring artwork on the web, or even by making up stories and telling them to a child.  Inspiration for today's fantasy project came from the imaginative children's book Grandfather Twilight.  When I encountered the ingenious illustrations in this book, I was so excited by them that I couldn't wait to begin creating something of my own.

After developing an idea, we move into the phase of acquiring images.  This can be accomplished with our cameras or by purchasing stock photos from a site such as Shutterstock.  If you have a passion for photo compositing, I encourage you to begin creating composites even if you don't have time to capture the images yourself.  After all, only with practice can we develop the skills necessary to produce results that reflect our imagination.

Once the images are in hand, the post-processing fun begins.  And so, too, does today's Photoshop Workbench tutorial.

Exploring new techniques.
One of the most intimidating things to learn when it comes to lighting is how to choose the right light modifiers. There are countless umbrellas, softboxes, octaboxes, stripboxes, and beauty dishes offered. All these contraptions help shape the way light spreads in different ways, and the appearance of the people and objects we photograph will be affected by this. The decision can be crippling. Thankfully there is an easy way to choose, and it’s ...

Category: Abstract. Aesthetically speaking, I love the texture of the grain added to this photo. I think it is something that gives a photo a dream-like quality that usually totally completes my vision of the final edit.

Whatever you can do, or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it.

Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

I love soft side light, and I frequently use it to highlight the form of objects, and the light wraps around them.

Introduction
Welcome to Betty Manousos' Page on Google+

"Which of my photographs is my favorite? The one I'm going to take tomorrow." -Imogen Cunningham

I'm an economist, photographer, and blog's owner. 
I started getting seriously into photography in late 2013 when I decided to follow my passion. What started out as part of a hobby has eventually become more of a passion. I think I've caught the photo bug!

#Google+ has fit into my daily online routine as a place to find like-minded people, discuss them and be inspired...and hopefully inspire others.

Oh wait! The thing that really annoys me would have to be someone who wants to be called "Grand Emperor Supreme!".
It drives me crazy when I come across arrogant people. (Read: Insecure, having low self-esteem.) These people are unpleasantly proud and behaving as if they are more important than other people. 

I think if they could rid themselves this trait the world might be a better place.
