One of the best gifts I’ve ever been given was the opportunity to spend a month in the Netherlands prior to my August 2019 workshop. I loved everything about the country, particularly the countryside. The forests were particularly enchanting to me. I loved walking in the woods, seeing the moss and vegetation. The way the light would filter through the leaves in the mornings and evenings was a sight to behold.
One day I was on a walk and stumbled on this tree. The whole environment surrounding it was enchanting. It’s base seemed to be the perfect soft and cozy nesting spot for a newborn. Everything from the light to the shape of the exposed roots charmed me. Using my 85mm camera, I took 16 shots and stitched them together in Photoshop to create this digital background.
To make compositing easier, I’ve also included detail from the exposed root areas so that there is less masking necessary for believable compositing.
There are two versions, one with a divider root (perfect for twins!) and one without.
There is also a FREE video included to show you how I composited this image! Watch it now!
