I would be interested in hearing peoples views on this set.
I can find it a trial to take a photo that has a unique feel to them. Does this work?
To do a shot like this, first you need to think of the composition on the canvas, as well the composition of the photograph. Both have to be pleasing.
Using a wide angle lens, these taken with the sigma 12-24, on a 5d mk3. Sturdy tri-pod, cable trigger.
During the two shots you have to shift your focus from the canvass, for the over all photograph, then, shift the focus to the subject for your subsequent shot, this makes the image for layering on to the canvas.
I used Perfect layers to merge the two.
When using a tripod I will always keep my ISO at 100. The aperture should be wide to allow the soft focus around the canvas.
While doing the PP, I would render the canvas image in a different style to the overall shot, just to help boost the contrast.

I like those pics and the logic you used - well thought out and provocative shots. Great work and very original.
