Fishhead Magazine Bureaucrats Feature Blended Images

I’ve been a bit quite on the blog front over the past few weeks. I have been shooting more freelance work for the magazine but as the magazine is not published yet, I cannot post these pics on the blog as yet. I  will also be posting a few more landscape photographs of Wellington’s South Coast (fingers crossed, hopefully this weekend) once I have gotten around to editing them. Sadly my laptop is old and very very slow and struggles to run Photoshop at the best of times. I think you can judge the age of a laptop by its uniform thickness. Mine is a good inch and a half think all the way through, baby. So it’s pretty old! Hopefully in the coming weeks I should be able to afford a laptop upgrade (woohoo!).

In the mean time I have been doggedly pursuing Photoshop tutorials (as and when the laptop allows),  so I thought  I would finally learn how to blend together the images from the Fishhead feature on Bureaucrats and their Hobbies. See the blended images for that assignment below:
