Today I spent some time working on my Photoshop skills, by removing annoying backgrounds from photos and creating collages. I used the photos I took at Katsucon for this exercise since, I thought I took some nice portraits but the backgrounds were distracting and full of random people. I created my own backgrounds for most of these pictures except in a few cases. You can see some of the final results here: http://munchkinphotos.smugmug.com/Portraits/Cosplay.
I also worked on creating some collages. I made two for my Munchkin Photos Facebook page cover photos. The most difficult part of the process was identifying which pictures to use and showcase the variety of my work. I also made one of compilation of images depicting the same lady cosplayer showing different expressions. This was a simpler collage since it was all the same person, though the sizing of the images was a bit challenging. Overall I think the collages came out ok. I now plan on updating the collage for my Facebook cover photo on quarterly or seasonal basis to keep it fresh.
