Alice in the Woods... on a mission
About all this model has in common with the remembered storybook character is the fun and spunky costume.   Getting into the design of this, I was wanting to work on my compositing skills.  Getting a person, or any specific object, from one photo and into the scene I am creating is definitely one of my current weak spots.  So, my main focus was working on developing skills to be further refined on my next pieces.  Pick one thing to be the thing you obsess about fixing, and figure out how to get that one thing done.  Complete.  Finido!

The background/foreground scene around the subject is a collection of different leaf and tree photos from  I moved and nudged each photo to get it in the right place with the right edge and the right order from front to back.  A video I spent time watching that influened my color coordinating during this project was youtube videos by Rafy-A as he works through a piece.


'Alice'  is Model: Dani L and the photo is from jagged-eye on  You can check out what her photo looked like when taken at…

Design 1701 - Turbulent Fields
Simple Composite of background and model.  Started this design to enter for Cathleen Tarawhiti's book cover design contest.  Did not complete in time for the submission deadline.  Spent to much time wandering around playing with different technique's.  Loved the lavender's in the model's dress, and how they play along with the sky.  -Desiree

Making the jump from simply retouching photos to photo manipulation to take my fantasies from dreamland and place them on 'paper'. Never thought to be able to do this, until I started playing around with more artistic options in Photoshop.
