Hi everyone just another image of me using composite techniques I learn from the book Photoshop Secrets of Compositing , this was more for me to get the light and shadows right and make it realistic as possible and add a bit of grit to the image to make it pop out.
So far so good I know it still needs a bit more work but I’m on the right track and look forward to starting some more work on it.
So I hope you like this one, any questions about the image just post it on the comment and I’ll get back to you asap.
Just finish an original piece of composite image featuring my daughter, the techniques I learnt from Photoshop Secrets from Matt Kloskowski has really help me out.
The background of the image was made by Kieran Hamilton which was already HDR and I added my daughter in after doing the selection, exposure correctly to fit with the background.
I then used curves, filters and special effect to get that gritty look I have as a final image. Please if you have any questions about this image, just ask and I’ll get back to you asap. Thanks.
Heres a link to the book Photoshop Compositing Secrets by Matt Kloskowski on Amazon.

I just finished a movie poster about the First Samurai using techniques and images from the book Photoshop Compositing Secrets by Matt Kloskowski.
It took me half a day to do it but I learnt a lot of new things I will take on with my future projects. Hopefully in a few weeks I will be posting more original stuff up. I’m excited to be doing this kind of work due to the fact I used to do when I first started to do photography, its good to get back to your roots.
More work and original work will be coming in the next few weeks so look out for that, and ask questions if you want to know anything how these images are made or just buy the book Photoshop Compositing Secrets by Matt Kloskowski click on the link. Until next time take care and have a great and productive day. Here’s the image I produced.
Sorry for taking so long to do another post on here been a bit busy and not allocating my time properly.
I did another sport portrait, with 3 images, clouds, basketball court and our player. After I did the selection around our player, I then concentrated on the background with the idea of making it more dramatic with a bit of punch, but always making sure it didn’t take the viewers away from the main image.
I then put it together using selections, color contrast and other filters to make it as realistic as possible.
After I finish the image I use a Plug-in call Topaz which you can buy at www.topazlabs.com, you can also trial it before you buy it.
I used the filter Portrait drama to finish of my image which gave it that gritty and punch look I wanted.
It took me about 3 hours to do and a lot of patience, I’m quite happy with what I finished with I hope you guys like it too.
Here the book I used to learn the techniques, from Amazon.
A composite image in photography is when you take multiple images and put them together to form one image giving the illusion that the image is real.
I use to do this when I first started out in Photoshop and photography but since my portraits business has taken up a lot of my time, I hardly use this technique until a client recently wanted me to put him in a image and make it realistic as possible, lucky for him I had experience in doing this kind of stuff.
I then when to check out who’s making wave in the industry with this kind of technique and I found some people who’s work are just amazing such as Joel Grimes, Dave Hill and Kelby Training.
I got the bug now and will start to do a lot of composite photography in my work now. Here’s a sample I did recently, bit rusty but I’m getting there, what do you think.
