These three diptychs were made from the source images found in The Proper Tool for the Job. This collection of images was taken over several month with both a DSLR and Android phone. They were different sizes, resolutions and most had a shallow depth of field; everything that makes them decent individual images but something that makes composites especially difficult. I used ten of the thirty images from last weeks post to make the three composites shown here.
The folks over at PhotoshopCAFE have made one of the best explanations of Curves I have seen. I though I knew everything about curves and I still learned a thing or two. It’s worth a look. Lightroom and Elements also have Curves adjustments and the principles talked about in the video also apply.
