I was hired to photograph Mike in the studio in Draper. The photos were shot on a grey seamless background. I then used Photoshop to add him to various locations such as beaches in Puerto Rico, Costa Rica, and even a stock photograph of a gym. It’s a lot cheaper than flying to these countries, but maybe not as much fun as visiting different countries around the world. If you need me in a different country, I’m game by the way.
Using Photoshop to create composites is great for commercial photography. I definitely try to find any situation where a composite will help a photograph. I’ve been building a personal library of background images, but there is a world of stock photography that can help out. The next step will be creating entire worlds with a combination of photos. Hollywood has been a great example.
It also means I can create THE perfect photograph. It is almost like buying the perfect outfit… the shoes, the pants, the top, and the accessories were all found separately and then combined for the right situation.
If you’re into fitness, you should definitely look a getting a photo shoot. We don’t have to using Photoshop to change backgrounds. We can photograph outside or in studio.
