The thing about Photoshop is that it’s too easy to get bogged down in creativity when working on images, and not get anything done. At the Junkyard, we didn’t have much of a sky so I started in on a couple of images I really liked, two of Lauren and one of the amazing Elley Cat. Elley was first; I loved her stance on the car, but I didn’t like the sky.
So I started playing around in Photoshop. I pulled images I had shot before, elsewhere; all of the images that ended up as components of these final images are mine as well, so I don’t run into any copyright issues. After finding what I feel is the best possible image, I ended up with this.
This got me really excited about making fun stuff in Photoshop. So I pulled a couple of Lauren’s Umbrella Corporation images. Here are the before and afters of these. If you can guess where the images were shot that ended up in the backgrounds of the composites, please leave your guesses in the comments and I’ll confirm or deny whether you’re right.
