Here are some “before & after” images of two of my recent dark portraits.
Composite photography is about “stitching” different images together and here you can see a couple of examples from my latest work.
It’s all about using your imagination. For an example I used a old pot to “be” my emty head.
Of course there is a lot more to it than just stiching the images together: Changing the finale image with contrast, colors, dogde & burn, removing things from the scene (eg. the electric power line from the doll image) and so on.
But hopefully you get an idea by these “before images”?
