After trying a variety of subjects, I headed to the produce department and found this chard leaf. I left in both the red and magenta to fill in the veins better. I brought down the exposure and increased the texture. I love this lesson and look forward to using it again.

Jo Ann says:

I recently watched a tutorial with a "heads in the clouds" surreal composite and knew then I wanted to try this technique. My lovely model is my DIL Heather. How lucky am I to have two Heathers in my family? I took the photo of Heather in front of the siding on the house thinking it would be easy enough to extract her from the background. Then I placed her on the sky photo that I took from my front yard last night. I had to take out some distractions like trees and a house. In PS I added a cloud brush to the center. Then I extracted the hat and put it on its own layer and masked out Heather's face to reveal the clouds below. I moved the hat just over top. I used a bird brush that I made from a bird photo I took last year and duplicated and flipped the birds to make more of them.

Since repetition creates harmony and visual rhythm, I decided to go literally with the musical theme and shoot this 120 year old pump organ keyboard Edited in Prisma app with Wild.

Ricky says:

I love the little forest next to my house (affectionally named Mirkwood, a nod to The Hobbit), and I always think that it is filled with magic. I was fortunate to have Brian Lyon and Cory Annis here for the holiday weekend. We stewed on various ideas and I thought about creating a wizard. I dug into my fabric stash and found the yardage left over from making the Lizzy Albright cape. Don't be deceived, there is no back to the robe you see here, it's just draped over. My model is my neighbor, Steve, whose wife rolled with laughter when she saw the not-yet-edited version of her hubby. This image is a composite of four images and only one of them was taken at dusk (the trees and lights in the back), the others were taken in daylight. I added the photos of poppies from a couple weeks ago. The staff here is not really a staff, it's a dead oak that I painted red earlier this summer as a meditation stick in the forest. The main orb is all "created". The mid-sized lights are from my solar lights in the trees, and the tiny lights are also created. It was fun, and this red wizard is still currently nameless, but he might just show up as a chapter in the Lizzy Albright sequel - we shall see.
