What Is an Artistic Composite Portrait? A subject is photographed in one setting and during post-processing is placed into another setting or their photo is modified in an artistic way to match their personality, to show their passion, their skills, and their drive. Much like a great painter or sculptor would capture a moment or a feeling when painting a portrait. The composite is the photographer's brush. We like to use a green screen in the studio to set the stage for many composites, but that is not the only way we create them.
The possibilities with composites are endless. Their impact is amazing when visually attempting to show the inner person to the outer world in a visual creation of portrait art. Composites also require planning, exceptional lighting, management of tone and color and light and the skill and vision to create them.
