This is a composite of three pictures. Nichole was shot in a studio while she practiced cheerleading jumps. The pose reminded me of levitation photos I saw online, so I went out to the Cross Country course and shot the field next to it, taking two photos to capture proper exposures of the sky and plants. I compiled the images and attempted to color balance each portion to match. The studio lighting was hard to correct and Nichole doesn't quit match with the background. However, this was my first attempt at such a composite image so I'd classify it as a success.
