Getting creative with Photoshop is very easy once you learn how to manipulate other photos into your work. I started with this picture of my son escorting my daughter’s mother-in-law down the aisle at the wedding of December 0f 2010. He really hasn’t had much opportunity to wear tuxedos, but I think he looked great.
The hat, the sunglasses, the carpet, the backdrop, the model in the red gown, all were all separate pictures. Using the selection tool in Photoshop, I had to carefully trim out the areas that ere unnecessary. Later I has to erase some pixels or add some native color pictures.
What do you think of the end result. Click the photo for it to enlarge.
You too can add a family member to a glorious event like the Grammy Awards, if you can get them in a tux, that is.
