Lately, all I think about is compositing, and I'm going to spend many hours this winter perfecting my skills. Compositing involves the blending of two or more images into one. I have found it useful for adding a more interesting sky to a background. The possibilities for artistic editing are endless. I now have an idea to create a bicolor soft pastel image and use this for a background. Adding textures to a final composite can make them look more complete. I've been making my own textures by photographing wood, limestone, water, etc. Learning compositing involves many hours spent in Photoshop; I enjoy it!
