That is an excellent question! A composited image is simply more than one image combined to create a whole new image. There are some things that, let's face it, just wouldn't be safe to try with a newborn unsupported. To ensure 100% safety for babies, these images are done by combining images and editing out the supports. So, while the baby may appear to be resting on the edge of a box with her foot hanging over the ledge, she was, in fact, lying on a well supported set with no chance of her rolling or startling off of anything.
How did you get the baby like that??
Again, this would never be safely done without the ability to composite images together. This baby was laying on his support system with extra strategically placed supports to mimic the appearance of lying like this. The bear outfit is real, but the shelf was a totally separate image.
Baby is safe 100% of the time.
Compositing for Fantasy Art Pieces
Thanks to the possibilities compositing images provides, I can make almost ANYTHING that you want! This girl wanted to be a mermaid! We went to the beach, and photographed on the beach, but I added a tail, birds, a sky, and a reflection to the water to create this fun art piece! What child doesn't want to see themselves as a mermaid, or riding a dinosaur, or taming a dragon, out at sea.... The list could seriously go on forever!
