To combine our work, Lawrence needs to remove the background imagery in his photograph and usually in the image of Victoria’s drawing. This can be quite time consuming as he painstakingly removes the leaves and landscape from his photograph. Lawrence needs to do this with Victoria’s drawing even if the background is white for their images to be visible. Through the process of layering and masking in Photoshop, they determine how the final image will look when merged. Their collaborations go in both directions!
