I love good composite work. Even though it’s a different art form from photography, it’s strongly connected to it and it lets your imagination go wild. Ted Chin (previously) creates some of the trippiest composites I’ve seen, and he has kindly shared his latest work with us. His images show animals in environments where only imagination can put them, making his work look as if it comes straight from the dream world.
One lesser known spectacular visual treat of nature is the “Firefall” in Yosemite National Park. Each year in February, at Horsetail Fall, if the sun if the weather conditions are right, it turns into a fiery looking flow of water. And this year, photographer and friend of DIYP, Ted Chin was there to capture it.
Editor’s Note : Digital storyteller and friend of DIYP, Ted Chin has been guest posting on the official Photoshop Instagram account. This particular post is a fantastic double exposure tutorial, which Ted and Adobe have allowed us to share with you here on DIYP. A simple technique with very effective results.
Hey guys! It’s Ted (@eye.c) here. Today I’m going to show you how to create a double exposure portrait in just few simple steps.
The world can be a pretty strange and surreal place as it is, but for those times when it’s not quite weird enough, we can always rely on photographers and image manipulators like Ted Chin to show us things we couldn’t possibly imagine.
After finding Ted’s work on Instagram, where he has over 21,000 followers, DIYP got in touch with him to chat about his inspirations and his work.
