In today’s Workbench, we have an ambitious goal — to create an edgy composite from start to finish. We’ll be using two photos submitted by Phil Frigon. The first is a grungy warehouse background captured with a 16mm lens and the second is a photo of his grandsons captured in a studio with a 24mm lens. The process of extraction will move along quickly thanks to the manner in which Phil captured his grandsons. First, he photographed them in front of a white unlit background that appears as light grey. This is the ideal backdrop for extraction. Second, Phil used rim light to help separate the subjects from the background. Our goal is to bring these two images together into one cohesive, edgy composite. Since this process can take awhile, I may move along a bit more quickly than usual.
