Herding Cats For Mother’s Day

By | Family & Friends | No Comments

With my wife out of town for a few days last week, I decided it was the perfect chance to create a fun, memorable photo for Mother’s Day.

I am excited to see that my friend Matt Kloskowski’s new book, Photoshop Compositing Secrets, is out! Matt was kind enough to mention me and this blog post regarding a composite I did for a band last year. If you are into compositing at all (or want to be), I highly recommend it.
