Sade “Soldier of Love” album cover

2 Feb

For The Bricks art show called “Photo Album”, each artist was to recreate an album cover of their choice as a photograph. Just up my alley. I jumped at Sade’s Soldier of Love. It’s so beautiful.

My image contains a couple elements composited together. I took a photo of Tasha against a simple blank wall, cut her out with the pen tool, and pulled that cutout onto an image of a beautiful port village in Vietnam. Then I overlaid some texture and a vignette with the burn tool, added some depth to the sky, and added the little black bird as a composite as well. Pretty simple, but it does take a little while because of all the precision cutting around the edges of the images.
