Saw these styrofoam heads sitting on the shelf as I walked through an arts & craft’s store and couldn’t resist taking a couple of photos. When I looked at it on the computer, I thought it might make a nice demo image for an upcoming set of presentations I’m doing this year on image compositing. Grabbed a couple of my texture images and used Photoshop’s displacement mapping and some blend modes to create this illustration. I think it will be a fun image to demo at my next presentation at Photo Pro Expo in Covington KY in a few weeks.
Last month Helene and I spent a day wondering around the Southeast Railway Museum near our home, and I am now starting to work with some of the images. Got some fun shots to play with there. Great place if you like rusty train cars. Have a Happy and Creative New Year and remember to "Work Smarter…. Not Harder"
