It takes photographer Brooke Shaden all of 6 minutes. 6 minutes to take two separate images — one of a woman in a red dress, another of a forest scene — and combine them together into a fairy tale composite photograph.

If you’ve never seen a basic composite come together, or if you think it always requires “cutting” a subject out of one image, Shaden’s approach in this CreativeLive clip will surprise you with both its incredible simplicity and the quality of the final product after only 6 minutes of work.
