Layer masks are a wonderful tool, but the classes are tired of them. The final assignment before midterm tests involved assembling two images into a single photo. Sean Thorenson shot the photos and Jason Lueder attempted to show his good side. The result was two images that could be easily combined into a single, more intriguing photo with the use of a layer mask.
The assignment was created to gauge the students’ understanding of layer masks. This photo only requires five or 1o minutes of work to create the double image, but understanding how the process works and what tools to use can take much longer.
