Nothing motivates you for exercise than a dinosaur chasing you!
My friend Jenn had made a snapshot of little Olivia on the beach in southern California. The photograph was created with an iPhone so the quality isn’t as good as my big cameras but this proves content is king. Olivia didn’t just learn to walk—she runs everywhere. So Jenn asked if I could add a dinosaur chasing her to have fun with the photograph. Challenge accepted.
I found a tyrannosaurs rex stock photograph on Shutterstock and I had to work in the limits of the iPhone photograph. Matching light, color, contrast. It actually took two different stock photos to find the right model to create this scary and fun photo.

This is why God created Photoshop.

I would love to be a bit more creative where people are doing things in interesting locations with tanks or dinosaurs. […]
