Adding a person to a photograph

Before Christmas in 2009, one of my co-owner’s wives asked me if I would photograph her family so she could give a family portrait to her husband for Christmas. We did the photo shoot at her friends house and I got many wonderful pictures of this happy family.

The wife later asked if I could add her husband to the picture. Using the ruse that I wanted to have a photograph of him when his telephone number came up on my phone, I took a picture of him sitting at his desk using the digital camera on my telephone. Using Photoshop, added him to the family portrait.

I wasn’t particularly pleased with the background in the photograph, so I used another photograph and placed the family into that photograph.

Looking back on the photograph now, I see things I would like to change, but having committed the cardinal sin in Photoshop, I accidentally saved over the layered copy of the photograph I wanted to change, so there can’t be any more alterations made.
