Hobbyist photographers routinely surprise me by the high level of work they produce. Frank Bramkamp, for example, creates great-looking photo composites. Intrigued by a couple of his recent accomplishments, he and I started chatting. As it turns out, his work has been featured on creativeLIVE, Xrite, Synology, and it can be seen in Practical Photoshop magazine.
During our correspondence, Frank spoke from his wealth of knowledge on the subject of photo compositing. He not only knows how to take a good picture, but he knows how to manipulate what he captures, thereby creating something completely different. His ace in the hole: Exposure 5.
I asked Frank to share some of the details of his compositing workflow. Below are a bunch of practical tidbits from him. Thanks, Frank!
