4th of July Fireworks Composite - Nevada

Here's my 4th of July composite photo! Did something a little different this year. Drove out to Boulder City to see the fireworks, they had a really nice event set up at a park, but as I was walking to the park I saw this water area and new exactly the photo I wanted to capture, so I set up my camera and waited. Ducks went crazy with all the...


I forgot I already posted the Zombie... here is a more recent one I call "Invasion"

Horror Show

Inspired by a Mark Fredrickson illustration back in the 90s, it took several photos and a lot of Photoshop to create my self-portrait rendition.

The fur was from the mane on one of my daughter's stuffed animals, and the monster fingers were leftover from Halloween. I popped the popcorn myself!

A composite from two of my shots, my goal was to achieve a "Golden Hollywood Glam" style. Love to emulate old lighting setups. Hope you guys like it.

Given to fly

Personal project that i've realized in collaboration with Andrea Fioravanti, great Maya artist. I've shot the young pilot in my studio, Andrea sculpted the car and then we combined photo and cgi for testing some texturing and compositing tecnique.
I love the feeling of a wild ride in the desert with a car, how could it be if the car could...

My try

The model was shot on a gray background. Tried to add drama to the photo.
Please, share your thoughts about this.


I'm a big fan of the Dragonball Series. It was my introduction to anime and comics as a kid so I felt it was cool to show my appreciation and love for the series. I am the model and this is part of my creative portraits I do expressing my personality and skills. Hope you guys like it and feedback is welcomed

New to the group. Hi :-)

This was shot by a swamp but I didn't get the model to lay down in the water. Rather I had her lay in the grass near by and shot her and the water at the same angle.

The last survivor

I finished this composite, i really hadn't on mind what i wanted, just got a BG and start building it as i feel it, next time i'll try to do something with more story behind, hope you like it :)

Hopefully Better

Decided to re-shoot the bass portrait for the composite instead of reusing an image I already had. The result seems better to me than the original.

Flashpoint XPLOR 600 @1/4 power on boom through 36" Rapid Box high camera center, Flashpoint Zoom Flash (vertical) on light stands on each side @ 50mm, 1/32 power.

First Day of School

I normally shoot nudes. (I also make composites that include nudes. I didn't post one of those because I don't know if nudes are acceptable on the group.)

However, I was asked to participate in an exhibit with the theme of School Days. One of my models had posted an image of her 5-year-old boy with a very large green backpack when he...


I am looking to learn day by day, I am currently as a homeschooler mom, but I continue (at slow but continuous pace) working with new ways to take photos, even with my children, we work to create not only photography, but also art, with painting for Create "extraterrestrial characters", manipulating the photo with the program ligthroom, the...

The Illusionist

Ok guys, this is my latest work. Some people say "it reminds of new Photoshop image". Dear this is an "old technique" made with "distortion filter", which you can use to create for example a Planet (check my youtube to see my videtutorial click here -->

), so this is not a "...
