Reply Laura Shoe says: November 21, 2011 at 11:33 am Thank you, Gavin! Reply Linda Green says: December 20, 2011 at 2:12 am Laura, my new interest lies in “composites & light painting” and I love your composites here. Don’t know much about any of it but I will learn. I have your DVD to start and the rest will come. Thanx for sharing your artistic work with all of us! Reply Laura Shoe says: December 20, 2011 at 8:53 am Thank you, Linda! The compositing is done in Photoshop rather than Lightroom. Stay tuned for Photoshop DVD’s in 2012! Reply Salim Guzeyer says: August 20, 2012 at 8:15 am Simply stunning, thanks for sharing Laura. Reply Laura Shoe says: August 27, 2012 at 9:25 am Thank you, Salim! Reply Raymond says: December 2, 2012 at 4:26 pm ok. i gotta know. i haven’t gotten thru all of your video’s yet, so, on these composites, did you do them in Lightroom or Photshop. i have a portrait of a couple who does skiing in Seattle, and i have a shot of the mountain they ski on. i want to put them in the foreground of the Mountain. i love this type of photography Reply Raymond says: December 2, 2012 at 4:29 pm oops. now i see it was done in Photoshop. do you have a video on photoshop. i can’t find it on your site Reply Laura Shoe says: December 3, 2012 at 5:02 pm Hi Raymond, yes, unfortunately Lightroom doesn’t have compositing capabilities…. and I have not yet made a video series on Photoshop. I haven’t reviewed all that’s out there, but I would check out Mark Johnson,Lesa Snyder, Dan Moughamian, Tim Cooper, and Tim Grey. I’m sure I’m forgetting others.

Reply Arief says: July 23, 2013 at 1:14 am I like your B/W picture. Reply JAmes says: February 11, 2015 at 12:18 pm Like these composite, “ghosts of Jerry Uelsman”…… Good site also! Later james Reply Linda says: April 5, 2016 at 2:30 pm Where can I get the correct info for attempting to do a composite for myself, I just need help to get going on something simple – simple, understable instructions please. I would just love to get started on this type of photo. Thank you. Reply Laura Shoe says: April 20, 2016 at 9:42 pm I don’t know, unfortunately, Linda, as I haven’t screened Photoshop training. You could do a subscription to Lynda.com for lots of courses. Another option is Katrin Eisman’s Photoshop Compositing book. I haven’t looked at the new version of this, but the old version was quite good. The images on this site are quite simple, as far as composites go. They involve putting one photo on top of the other on two different layers and then changing the blending mode of the top one. (I know I’m not giving you enough information to accomplish it, but this should send you off in the right direction.)
