the anatomy of a shot - 25/52 - hollow me

Due to popular request (2 people asked *g*) I'm giving you a little insight on the images I used for my "hollow me" photo manipulation. It's no tutorial by any means, I just wanted to show you how I work photographing the components for a composition. And yeah, I'm well aware that I'm half naked...

  2. Great blog post Marcus. These pictures are worth a thousand words—they explain the process perfectly.

    Thanks for taking the time to put this post together.

    Thank you so much for sharing how you did this - although I know a bit about photoshopping it's always interesting to see how others do it! And you did do some things different to how I imagined! Oh and being the proud owner of the final shot I have to say your editing is FLAWLESS!
