This is probably the most ridiculous thing I've made lately. But, as I mentioned in the last post I'm messing around with learning new software, or learning more about "old" software.
This came about because Carly and I were looking through the Awkward Family Photos website. We were chatting about how we don't have a family photo. We then came across one of those creepy double exposures where a parent's profile is large and floating above a 3/4th length portrait of a kid. I said "aha!" and she said "oh, no" -- and so I got to work.
If I had shot these pictures with the intention of making this silly composite I would have lit them a little bit differently. I would have used a stronger rimlight so I wouldn't need to create the "halos" around the kids to have them standout from the background. But, more than likely, a picture like this will never be my intended target.
Maybe this one needs to be blown up to a 20" x 30" and hung prominently somewhere. ( I kid! This is horrible. But funny. )
