All great Composite Photography begins first with your Creative Vision, and all great Composites resonate with the Human Experience, making it the most important Photography Tool we all poses.
The Composite Photographers Brush
Like a brush is to a painter, your Camera is the Photography Tool that allows you to bring your Creative Ideas to the real world. The brand of Camera, and the kind of Camera, you use is far less important than your ability to use them. Knowing your Photography Tools allows you to spend more time creating Composites and less time worrying about image quality, exposures, and depth-of-field.
The Composite Photographers Paint
If the camera is your brush, then the light is your paint. The type of light you choose, artificial or natural, depends entirely on your style of Composite Photography. While each lighting kit arguably has its positives and negatives, having a good understanding of light and its relationship to shadows is essential for producing Uniquely Different Composites that get attention.
