Composites & Manipulation

Photography in of itself became a little shall I dare say "boring" which is what led me down the path of photo composites and photo manipulation.  What once was done only in the darkroom became quite convenient with a computer and editing software.  Don't get me wrong photography can be very rewarding but it just doesn't get my creative juices flowing like other forms of art.

 

Photo Composite ~combines two (or more) photographs to create one final image.  So what you see in some cases are 5, 6 even 7 photos merged together.  Sure made photography much more creative!

Photo Manipulation ~any altering to the actual photograph.

An early example of manipulation was in the 1860s, when a photo of Abraham Lincoln was altered using the body from a portrait of John C. Calhoun and the head of Lincoln from a famous seated portrait by Mathew Brady.  This same portrait was the basis for the original Lincoln five-dollar bill and your history lesson for the day!!
