Back in December I set myself a challenge to dust off my Photoshop skills and do a composition featuring our newborn son, our cat and his bear. As it t’was the season Christmas ended up being the theme. The main technique was to bring a photo in, crop it, adjust the levels and hues and then to add the correct highlights and shadows to the match the scene. I used pixelsquid for some of the elements like the sign and the lantern - as these are 3d objects you can manipulate the angle to just how you need it. The hardest part was getting my son to sit in the correct position for his photo but we got there in the end.
