When you look at a photo showing a fantasy world, there is often that moment of armament on how the final photograph looks so real and yet unreal at the same time. That is because good compositors use real elements from real photos and have the ability to blend them in well. Of course, there is more to this art than just selecting photo parts and throwing them together. In fact, watching how a composite comes to life is almost as looking at a piece of art that is disconnected from the final photograph.

Photographer and retoucher Renne Robyn records her process of compositing a photo and they are a delight.

The four movies below show 4 different composites. You can use the roller to see a before and after, and then watch the movie to see who it was made. (or jump to the end to learn more about Renee)

    If you can’t say kickass then just say amazing or awesome, or the overused “epic”. Not a$$ looks like a 12 year old posted it. And anyway kickass doesn’t look like it’s from a serious site. What’s happened to DIY?!?
