I was a little bored today so I started playing around with a few of my images. Seems I do that often these days, 😉 . The background image is an aerial picture I took a couple of months back. I then used several layer masks to add the various people. If you haven’t used layer masks on photoshop, which I assume you have, its the best way to combine two images together, or in this case several!
I’m not sure if other photo editing program have this feature, but its always been one of photoshops best functions. If you’ve ever seen any movie poster, its a good chance the photo portion of it was created with this feature. Of course the movie posters do a much better job than I did with this one.
If you notice, I also tried to add shadows on a few of the people. I didn’t time myself on the how long I took, but it was not long. Give it a try, its actually fun once you get the hang of it! The possibilities are endless!
