Team-Up Thursday Update & Tutorial: Week Six

Well, well, well. Everyone moaned and groaned about SELF PORTRAIT, but did you guys ever come through!! Wow! Looking through everyone's diptychs this week was such a treat. I felt like I got a glimpse into your personalities and lives in all your self portraits. So thank you, everyone, for digging deep and working with a challenging theme. It was a great one to do together.

I thought I'd post a quick how-to on my levitation shot from this week. Those of you who already know these steps can just skip to the end of the post :).

Here is my first shot:

"Aha," I hear you all thinking. All you do in photoshop is layer photo #1 on top of photo #2 and then erase the stool (with the eraser tool). That's all it takes to make someone levitate. Even my kids thought it was pretty cool :). To polish it up, I square cropped it and added a cool free texture on top as an overlay.

Now, on to the upcoming week. Melody and I have chosen WALK for our theme. We're back to "choose your own theme," so don't feel obligated to follow ours.

Looking forward to seeing your next creation...
