Compositing a Large Group

Iroquois Employees

When Iroquois Gas Transmission System wanted a group photo of all their employees to celebrate the company’s 25th. anniversary, getting everyone together at one time in one place was an impossibility due the nature of the jobs and their locations in Connecticut and New York state.
The solution was to photograph the core employees at their main headquarters and the rest at their other locations, and composite it all together in Photoshop. The challenge was to maintain similar lighting styles, perspectives and options for positioning in the group. And for an added hurdle, had to work with supplied images from persons who were not available at the shoots.
For reference, the original smaller group photo is on right. This image is probably among one of the largest complex composites I’ve ever worked on, over one hundred layers and almost two Gigabytes in size.

Kayaking Among The Treetops

Gale Meadows Pond is a 195 acre man made pond which is part of a 707 acre wildlife management area straddling the towns of Winhall and Londonderry in southern Vermont. The trees are remnants of the damming of the area in 1964 to make the reservoir and wildlife preserve.

Kayaking on the first day, we had mirror-like surprisingly warm placid water, perfect air temperatures, beautiful blue skies with puffy clouds and Great Blue Herons fishing around. Picture perfect, except I don’t usually take my Nikons on a kayak. However, I was determined to come back the next day with my camera to get a few pics. Of course, that day we had contrary conditions, with a variable cloud cover presenting rapidly changing light and very windy. Nevertheless, it was still a nice way to spend a late spring afternoon.
