Playing around with this idea of combining illustration and photography. Here is a hummingbird drinking from a floral ring. There are two ways that I have tested this out, using Photoshop to bring the photography together with the illustration or photograph them both together from cutting the image out. This was the latter, unfortunately my wall is textured and my light was rubbish but this shows me that that this is the best approach!
I usually adore Photoshop but this time the camera won! (of course it will be edited and text added with the program)
