Photography can add excitement and allure to many subjects. As an up-cycled designer, I have engaged with professional photographers as much as possible to position my craft in the most favorable light. But using professionals is not always possible or affordable, so using DIY options can be an excellent alternative. In this picture, I photographed my up-cycled ensemble on a mannequin, and then erased the background in Photoshop. Using publicly available stock photo sites, I found a suitable photo to drop my picture into! The results, I think, are better than the parts!
