Photo Post Processing: Not a joke task

I raised my hat to all those who do post processing work on photos. At times people criticize your  work that it is overly done or not so professional and the like. My post processing arsenal is only made of Lightroom 3.6 and free software Paint.net. I just did a single photo to clean out the rest of the background and really it takes time and effort just to have it really nice and done before making another use of the image.

Check out one of my self-portrait photo which I did post process first before doing some other photo editing tricks.

Image compositing

Image compositing is the technique where two or more photos or layers are put together to create a single image.

This is usually done to put a different background on a person’s profile or whole body picture but making sure that as if it is a single image. Besides that it is also use usually in magazines and advertising where text are included as if partial of it are at the back of the person in the image.

I was doing a portrait session with my co-workers for our company’s website. We had a little fun shot shots session and I did some photos as composites in magazine covers. If you think this is cool please let me know by leaving your thoughts or ideas in the comment box at the end of this post.
