Today I thought I would have a go at a simple composite image – so today I am going to be Mary Poppins, the children’s nanny who can fly over London just by raising her umbrella in the sky. I am sadly not off to London, but instead I am going to have a go at flying in my own back garden.
My set up today includes:
- A tripod
- 17-70mm lens – set on a wide angle
- a remote camera release
- Me and my umbrella!
I took the two Raw Images into LightRoom first and made some alterations. I increased the clairty, edited the exposure, and added some definition to the sky so it had some colour. I cropped them slightly and then I took the images over to Photoshop where I tidied up the messy lawn slightly, added a fake shadow, a bit of bluring, some dodge and burn after I had joined the images together… so I can be Mary Poppins for the day …what do you think?
