Well, now it's time to put everything we've learned together and create some really cool imagery. And this is the challenge section. I'm going to go ahead and show you a finish picture and show you the source pictures that you going to start with, and you going to try to get from these plain source images to this finished image that I've created. So let's take a look at our first challenge and our first image. Now, this is a really fun image. When I, I shot this, I wanted to have this composite of the same model in six different outfits.
I, I call this The Photo Shoot. And we have the different styles of people. You have the actual glamour model in the middle, and then you have the assistant on the right, and the photographer. And then you have the, the girl was just looking at her nails and, so we have all these different looks, and the way I shot this was, I lit the whole studio. Locked down the camera and then positioned her in each of these locations exactly where she would not overlap with herself. I wanted to blend these together, and that's going to be your challenge. Now let's take a look at the six shots you are going to be working with So, these are the six images.
And I have re-positioned in each of the six locations. And we're going to open this up as a stack. Now, I'll give you a starter right here. When you open this up, what you're going to want to do is select all of the images. I'm going to do Command A on a Macintosh. So, we're just going to make sure that they're all selected. Command A, and we're going to step in to the layers mode. then you'll get this warning. Yes, you do want to work with six files, and here's the secret, you want to make sure that you add these together as layers.
If you have edit a copy clicked, it's going to open up the images as a separate item. So make sure you have add as layer. And make sure you have photoshop which supports layers and go ahead and hit okay. It's going to bring all of these six images into the layer module. And now it's your turn to blend these together in the most efficient way that you can think of.
