This is a photo manipulation, a type of art that involves manipulating different photos into one continuous image. The best comparison to traditional art is of a collage.

Creating a photo manipulation is not merely a process of cutting and pasting different images together. The artist must be aware of the lighting and color scheme for all the different images.



This is what “The Star Lady” would have looked like if I hadn’t blended the different images together, let alone changed the time of day and made one of the women into a star spirit.
