Photobashing Experiment

A rough photobashing experiment done for my thesis over the subject.

All images used are either taken by me, or free to use for such work.

Noah Bradley's Photo Reference Megapack in particular was an excellent package for study, reference and photobashing, check it out at: https://gumroad.com/l/reference
