Mixing Photography & Graphics



This is a cool photo I found that has been edited to include some graphic elements, namely the geometric structure floating above the sand and the paper like snails. It looks as though they took an image and put a filter over it to give it a red tint.  They then added the images (which they could have created in illustrator using the pen tool and the shape tools, then adding gradients) and created drop shadows using something like the burn too or a multiply filter on a layer. Overall it probably wasn’t too difficult to do, but it really made for a fun piece that definitely has an element of whimsy.
