Composite Image

Now that you have created a composite photo from web images, create a composite image using your photos. If you want to add an object/subject that would be hard to photograph, you may find it on the web or in a book, but the majority of the imagery must be yours. The image will consist of a background and five additional layers. Do not flatten. Save as PSD or TIFF. Then resize and Save As jpg for your blog.
Image size = 8x10 at 200 PPI

Cockamamie Current Event

Using the tools and techniques learned in class, change the meaning of a news, advertising or current event photo by adding or subtracting information. Consider image quality. Don't use the first image you find of a given subject. Use of low quality images will lower your grade as much as poor compositing techniques. The final image should be between 5x7 and 8x10 inches at 200 pixels per inch. Save as PSD and keep your layers.
