Perfectly casted with Jeff Bridges & Penelope Cruz: (but I'll take a go at it)
This photo, that was taken a year ago, was what I selected to be composited; based on the angle, lighting, and expression. A picture of me looking right at the camera would have taken me right out of the scene I was trying to naturally place myself in.
Then the work started. Cutting, masking, channel mixing, a bit of painting, and it really started to come to life!
And after 2 hours of fine tuning...(let's just let it run off the page shall we)
EDITOR'S NOTE: No costume shops or thrift stores, and I got the dress, the prince, and the scene! What do you think? I take on "Photoshopping Halloween" as an annual thing?
