Surreal Worlds With Digital Compositing

Sometimes to properly advertise a product, we need to create a surreal world or look, by mixing a number of photographs together. That way we get the clean and crisp commercial studio lighting along with unreal backgrounds. All of the pieces are extensively blended together with digital compositing.

 

To give you an idea of how it's done, some of these images have an simplified animation to show the building process.

Magazine Work

This image was created for a magazine article promoting an event in Las Vegas. I wanted to capture the feel of Vegas for this image that would go across two pages.

 

The animation below it shows the various parts and how it all comes together.

Composites for Bands

I use this technique a lot for bands. We always need impactful  images for album covers, posters, and visual pieces for banners and social media. I'll often shoot the parts separately, then digitally build the final image afterwards.
