It was Jamie's last day down so we swam in the pool one last time. I was trying to relearn how to do a backflip from my trampoline days. Never quite got the form down.
There are only so many backflips you can do before getting dizzy and my precious camera was getting soaked so I thought of something else... A composite image of the two of us in multiple locations.
This last one is probably my favorite of them all. There's just so much going on! The great thing about making these images, is that you really don't know what you'll end up with in the end. We did a number of different poses around the pool. Once you bring them all in photoshop as different layers you then can organize and pick the parts of the image you want to include in the final product.
For this last one, it just so happened that the two Jamie's sitting on the left side were looking in the directions of the other two Jamie's. And I didn't remember jumping in the deep end until I uploaded them and figured that worked out pretty well.
These are super simple to do but you gotta remember to blend all the shadows and details that are around each subject. Each image took about an hour to finish. The one of me jumping into the pool above this paragraph was the most difficult one becasue each part of me was overlapping.
