Wa­tery com­po­si­tions are very tricky. The way wa­ter re­acts with land is a test of your edit­ing skills; the grav­ity, the mask­ing, the ob­jects you blend and, of course, the wa­ter it­self, is dif­fi­cult to judge. For Murilo, the task pre­sented him with a chance to “cre­ate some­thing un­usual. I wanted to make a room im­mersed in the ocean, from the fish to the world out­side the win­dow.”

Pho­toma­nip­u­la­tions rely on a lot of dif­fer­ent tools, but blend­ing was key to mak­ing this im­age re­ally pop. Ad­just­ments and clip­ping masks were used to bring the scene to­gether, and mask­ing was also im­por­tant. “To cre­ate this im­age I used a lot of ad­just­ments like Colour Bal­ance and Hue/sat­u­ra­tion,” re­veals Murilo. “The mask­ing tools were also fun­da­men­tal, as they helped to frame the im­age as a whole.” The ef­fect that the ad­just­ments have in this im­age is clear to see from the shim­mer­ing jel­ly­fish to the blend of the sea out­side the win­dow. The colour­ing of the im­age as a whole feels co­he­sive too, some­thing that Colour Bal­ance helped with.
