Creating a Scene

This is the first of two photos I'm working on. The project was to composite different photographs into one and make it look real or believable. I had already photographed the car in Utah but didn't have time prior to moving to Savannah to place it in a different background. I decided to shoot down by the river off River Street and then photograph Shalae as my model. She did wonderfully! I tried to photograph the background, the car, and the model using the same angle, zoom, and direction of light so that they would mesh better in the end. In the end, I had a lot of fun doing this and hope to do more like it.

I started with this background.

This is one of the 27 other photos I used to create the final image you see below.

The finished composite of the car.

The model.

And finally, the finished piece that consisted of 25 different layers. You've got to love Photoshop!


  1. Jon,

    It looks really cool. Photoshop can do amazing things but both the model and the car don't need any touch ups, they look great just as they are! When you come back i've got a project that i've been working on for quite a while that I think you'll appreciate. Keep up the good work!
