I have a confession to make about this photo of Amanda which I posted on my previous blog post . . . it's not a real shot.
It's actually a composite of three separate photos that I put together in Photoshop.
I started with this photo of Jove and cloned him out as best I could, mostly around his outsides.
I used this photo for the sky. I took this picture years ago at Ala Moana Beach Park. I knew it would come in handy someday.
I then extracted Amanda from this photo and added her in.
There's actually a fourth element . . . this texture (my favorite) from Jessica Drossin called Sublime. I applied it two times to add some pop to the colors. I also blurred out the grass in the foreground to give a little added depth.
So now you know the truth . . . it's Photoshop . . . not me.
