The portrait of this King and Queen was scheduled to be taken on a backyard dock with the island in the background. But as fate would have it, on that Saturday a front was moving in and the wind gusts were 35 to 40 mph – playing havoc by blowing tree branches, light stands, hair and robes. With no time to reschedule, the photo (using an iPad), had to be moved indoors, requiring me to be a little creative with the final portrait in the steps shown below.
The backyard trees and pond needed to have details enhanced.
Moving all of the lighting and props to the living room made for a better controlled environment (lesson learned). The Queen is holding a fluorescent light tube which will be the background for inserting Queen’s Elizabeth’s scepter .
Then the two photos needed to be combined as well as the additional touches described below.
