The Crucible Poster

I was asked to create a film-style poster for a theater’s performance of The Crucible by merging a number of individual photos seamlessly.

These were the photos I was sent to work with (minus the picture of the trees):

 

Crucible Before

This is what they got:

Crucible After
What did I do?

I imported all of the photographs into one document, then isolated the individuals from their respective backgrounds using masks. I played with perspective, changed the lighting to be uniform, and added filters and shadows to blends the images with their new background.
