I hope everyone had a very happy New Year!
This is a composite I have been working on. The boardwalk was photographed at Playland in Rye, New York. The background cloud texture is by Photomorphis Textures. I used Capture One for my raw processing, and Photoshop for all the magic of blending different layers and photos. The Playland landscape was shot with my old Pentax and I was photographed with my trusty Fuji X-Pro1. The image is really just two photos (background and me) and the texture. I just worked using color layers, curves, and gradients to get the moon lit night feel to it.
I have a new Fuji in my bag, the Fuji X-T1 which I haven’t been able to really get out and shoot with it. The fact that I can shoot the camera with the remote on my iPhone is worth every penny since when I photograph myself for the composites with the X-Pro 1 I constantly have to shoot, jump up look at the image, go back reposition myself, make sure before I do that the focus is locked. Now I can just focus on myself while standing in position. A lot easier for me. I also get terrible motion sickness throwing myself in an out of scenes and looking at the camera. This will be so much better.
