Making Blended Photography with Different Images
This week I had the opportunity to create some blended photography. We had a guest model come where I was able to take some “Maid Mariam” photos. Afterwards, I went outside with my camera took some photos that I would create into textures. Some examples are like tree bark, walls, floors, and benches. Then for all three of my images, in Photoshop, I created blended photography by blending one of my textures and my Maid Mariam photos into one image. I put the texture layer over the image of the model(s) and then used the overlay blending mode to mix them together. I then added a mask to the texture layer and carefully smoothed out the texture around my models using the brush tool. Then, using the LUTS in color selection, I added some AMBER and FROGGY GREEN to my image to finish the blending. It was really fun and I am proud of the way they came out. Here are some images of my blended photography including the before and after images. Also a big shout out to TWISTED SHIFTER for having an amazing blended photography blog. http://twistedsifter.com/

Alex, great job blending the textures with each of your images!!! It really looks like she is in those different scenes. I really love the mood of the second one with the tree bark background. The colors work really well together and I love the models expression. Check out Brandon’s techniques with Lightroom and Photoshop: http://www.brgriffin.com/creative-flaming-arrow/#comment-21
