Wow. I love that image ... it's great. How did you do it? #155723

Nyoman Putra Dewantara August 08, 2004

Thanks, Amanda. The original image is the river landscape, and I use this as the background image in Photoshop. Next, back at home, I photographed myself several times in 4 different poses with a self-timer. Then I cut and pasted them in Photoshop. The first montage is the front figure, with hands on the chest. Then, I cut the other 3 poses photograph (I only cut the limbs) and pasted them behind the front figure.
I made the reflection of the figure by copying and flipping the whole figure vertically and applied overlay mode for this layer to mix it with the river. #693965
