How Did They Do That?

A question we often get asked is “How did you do that?” Here are the steps we take and exactly how we did 2008, 2009 and 2010.

Step 1: We choose what our theme will be. We always choose something pertinent to our family that year, often a vacation we have taken.

Step 2: We select a base image based on our chosen theme.  We often know in advance what our theme will be so we will make sure we take a photo to use as our base image during our vacation.

Step 3: The base image then determines how we can place our family members in the photo.  We decide how everyone will be placed within the base image.

Step 4: We take photos of each family member staged in exactly the same positions required to place them into the base image. 

Step 5: Let Photoshop do the rest!
