Photo editing in Photoshop is another passion of mine that goes hand-in-hand with photography. I’ve been editing photos and creating art in Photoshop since I got my first copy of Photoshop 2.5 back in the mid-1990s. Whether you need a photo enhanced to bring out its colors and beauty, several photos composited into one larger photo, or a background or elements removed from a photo, I can do it.

Compositing is the art of taking several photos and combing them, or elements of them into one seamless photo. This process can be used to create a photo like the one featured on my balloon twisting DVD “On the Road with Stretch shown on the left. The van I “sitting” in is actually a tiny toy less than 2 inches long. It appears to be sitting in my driveway, and the nose of the vehicle behind it is a full-sized car. The photo is comprised of 3 photos – 1 of the toy car, one of me sitting in a chair, and a third photo of my driveway.
Another use of compositing is to take multiple photos and combine them into a wide panorama photo like the one of the baseball field below. This photo is also a combination of 3 photos that were taken behind home plate, with each focused on a different section of the field. All three were combined to create the panorama photos that is much wider than a normal photo straight out of the camera.
