I created this photo using three unrelated photos, which is why I keep almost all of my photos, you never know when I need to add something.
The three photos I used were: one of winter trees with barren branches, a photo of a full moon, and a photo of a almost full moon covered with think layer of clouds.
Next step is to copy the full moon and paste it over the cloudy 3/4 moon. I use the lasso option in Photoshop but other Photo editing software has the same type of feature. Then you merge the two moon into one, save, and then open the merge photo in your photo edit software/App.
Now we move into the style of the photo, this part depends on what you like. You don’t have to follow what I did you can choose your own adventure. I would suggest playing around with all the settings and deciding what you like the best. Below are the settings I chose if you want a starting point.
Once you are done with your settings you need to overlay the tree branch photo onto your moody moon photo. To do that you need to copy the tree photo and paste onto the moon photo. Then you pick the blending option you like or you can merege the photos.
Now you know how I created this photo.
