Assignment 8: Portraiture and Light


Amy Kroll


This photo is a tribute to my long-distance relationship with my amazing boyfriend Stephan.

The picture is two images of us combined. The image on the left was taken in Monterey, California (my home town) and the image on the right was taken in Berlin (where he lives and where we met).

I created this photo in photoshop by erasing the background of the Berlin photo. This took a long time around my hair, but I finally got the hang of it by changing brushes and opacity.

This is my favorite photo of the course. One thing that I would change is that the lighting in Monterey is much brighter than the lighting in Berlin, making it look less realistic.
