Composite Portraits

Prime Creator

I occasionally like to do composite portraits, either with a bunch of people photographer separately or one person multiple times. If everything is consistent and the camera is locked down, it isn't too hard. Have you tried it?

Hey Tony. I've done it quite a bit and I agree. If the camera is locked down it makes it infinitely easier. I often get questions from people that want to composite their photos, but they haven't done any prep work - in other words, it's an afterthought. And if it's an afterthought, then you'll get the results of an afterthought which sometimes are unreliable. The more prep work you do, a composite can almost be perfectly seamless and come together in just minutes vs. hours sitting at the computer trying to fake reality. 

I absolutely agree, a little planning goes a long way!

Composites as an afterthought is bad. 😂 I’ve had people request it after the fact and I have to tell them I am not a magician.

Easiest way to make a good comp! Tripods are your best friend (as is constant lighting).
