Large Group Composite / Tuesday LIVE

This was without doubt one of the most fun tutorials I have done. Join me live Tuesday Dec 6th noon PST I will show you this shoot and walk you through this creative process both shooting and post production. I used the same girl in this tutorial simply for convenience but truly I cannot wait to do this with a large group or family.  I definitely want to explore this further with more props and backgrounds. The execution of this image is about consistency of angles and light and not moving those props at all made editing so much easier.

This shoot took under an hour and the complete Photoshop and composite also took an hour you can watch both videos also I did this shoot with Photographer and Graphic Designer Trisha Hadley http://trishahadley.com/ Trish also sat down and took an hour to do a full composite so you can watch this video too. You will see two completely different styles and techniques.

I opted to piece together each image and stitch them together and Trish clear cut and reconstructed the background (see below)

Both videos whatever style you choose will help you create easy composite images in many different ways and are a great start to our Fine Art and Composite series coming in the new year.

    1. Ah Ha! Found it. If anyone else is new to this like me and couldn’t find the videos referenced, you can go to the SueLive tab at the top of the page and then see the “Archive” section on the right side of the page. If you know the date, just scroll down to that date and Whala, there it is. 🙂 That is of course, if it’s listed as a “Live” session here in the Blog.
