Making of an “At the beach image”!

27 Jul 2011

New Studio setup

The background was masked out and a beach image of sun and water (that was taken last year) was inserted into the background.

With a little tweaking in Photoshop for vibrancy and saturation this is the finished image.

Hopefully I’ve given you some ideas to do your own SUMMER FUN IMAGES!! :)
