Another Composite


This time I used one of my own photos from Tepoztlan as the background image, and composited in a render of an English Yew from xfrog into the  foreground (left). I guess I could have just rendered the yew with transparency and composited it over the photo in GIMP,  but instead I actually imported the image into Blender, used an Emission Shader, and rendered both image plane and yew. I was trying out using View Layers, which turned out to be pretty straightforward once I discovered how to prevent the HDRI from being rendered too. So I did composite the two view layers in GIMP, I suppose I could have done that in the Blender compositor.
