One thought on “Tip of the Week

    I wanted to expand a little on my tip! I didn’t say much on Instagram. I took an image of this mirror – it’s in my children’s room! It’s above their dresser. I just got it and I’m so excited about it. I have seen so many photographers get images like this, I really wanted to try for myself. But I had no idea how they go about doing it, so I decided to do a composite. So it’s an image of this mirror, and then I went to my go to self portrait spot – next to a big door window in my small apartment. I edited both images so that they matched. Then I took them into Photoshop. I brought the self portrait onto the mirror image and shrunk it down until it looked natural in the mirror. Then I made a mask for that layer, inverted it, and painted my self portrait onto the mirror part of this image. The result is what you see! It was actually fairly easy to do and I love the end result. Hope that helps even more. <3
