I had the idea to create a photo composite of some of the marquee buildings in downtown Indianapolis, Indiana.
In order for the final image to work, I knew that I needed to do two things: 1) capture the images at about the same time of day, and 2) to capture the images from approximately the vantage point. Therefore, I hustled downtown one morning, and intentionally captured the images from a south-facing vantage point. I also captured some images of the bricks, sky, canal, and street that I knew I would need to use to pull the various components together. In hindsight I would have paid a lot more attention to the edges of my components, and to where I would cut them off and make the transition. That said, I pulled them all into Photoshop and cut out each component, and then warped them a bit to give a more whimsical look, and then added a sun flare to add some drama.
