Week Four Composites: Extra Time

“Imagination does not become great until human beings, given the courage and the strength, use it to create.”
― Maria Montessori

This week, due to snow days off from school, I had some extra time to create.  This week, I have three composites that I worked on during the week.

I find that I learn

something new while working on each composite.  Sometimes I am not quite sure where I will end up.  All I know is that I am thoroughly enjoying the process of seeing where my imagination takes me.

The first composite I completed this week began after a walk on the local greenway.  A young man had his feet hanging over the bridge.  I took that image, added six other images, used some plugins, and ended up with this.

Up, Up, and Away

I took many photographs during our time in the snow last week.  If you missed my snow images, you can see them here.  If you did see my snow images, you will most likely recognize some of the elements that went into the creation of this composite.  The beautiful trees in the image are trees that line a street in my neighborhood.  I walk by these trees every day when I am out exercising.

But, I feel my favorite composite that I created this week is the third one that I will include here.  It started out as one idea, but ended up leading me in a different direction entirely than I had originally planned.  I really think that is part of the magic in compositing.

I already have started planning and photographing for my next composite.  I am looking forward to another adventure in discovering how I can put the pieces together to express how I see or would like to see the world.
