Composites allow us to change the location of a shoot as well as many other cool effects.  The key is making the images merge in a similar fashion-like exposure levels, lighting directions, saturation, focus and so forth.

This is the original image that we shot downtown with very little post work done. I wanted to make the setting Amanda was in, a little more vibrant- with a little more life in the image.  The cool thing is, that we shot this natural light and as you can see, it was pretty overcast so the light was pretty unidirectional-like a big overhead soft box.

This is the final image.  The store front was a random shot I took at Olympic Park in Atlanta, while playing with a polarizing filter. But for the image for our model Amanda, it makes a more believable setting for her using her cell phone while shopping or whatnot. The lighting was real close from that day to the day we shot her in Palestine-over 500 miles away and over a year later!
