LOL This is how I do self-portraits. It’s a composite of me spinning, then doing a cartwheel, and then ending in the “pose” that we’ll call “queda de tres” or even “queda de rins” as movements in capoeira. I also had an assistant taking pics, they were VERY nervous. “Just take pics”!
I went walking among giants.
View of old growth trees on the Grove of the Patriarchs trail at Mount Rainier National Forest. The highlight of this easy walk is a stand of ancient Douglas fir, western red cedar, and western hemlock trees. The oldest trees here are about 1000 years old, and some have reached staggering dimensions. The crownless trees in this composite photo were still about 150 feet tall (45 m), and about 7 feet (2 m) in diameter. Many of the trees here are much larger.

This is a type of photographic edit called split toning. The highlights and the shadows of the photograph are toned two different colors, with the idea of creating a contrasting but complimentary dynamic. Split toning is rarely realistic and realism was not what I was going for in this photo. In this photo the highlights are toned green and the shadows are toned blue, to convey how fall can be both warm and cold.
Mechanical Sharpener is a composite photograph of two different fields of focus. This is to represent how there is often a disconnect between what the student wants to focus on in their studies vs what the school wants them to focus on. The subject of a mechanical pencil in an old fashioned wall sharpener represents the difficulties of the organized school system to keep up with technology.
This photograph also made use of compositing and the Rule of Thirds. The mirror takes up the image left third.
Love this composite picture from a South Alabama photographer and journalist. It looks like a page from an old children’s book.
This was entitled “2 Women” by the Boston Public Library, but our analysis finds that it’s a single ghost that is bilocating. Photo by Leslie Jones, date uncertain.
