I set a 12 inch gray manikin into an action pose and then photographed it on a green-painted canvas background (green-screening). I took the photo into photoshop, selected and deleted the green coloured background. Then I took a city photo and added a pshop lense flare. I then set the manikin layer on top and played with filters for contrast. I repeated the figure at various angles and sizes. Action comic book cover anyone? This would be a lot of fun to do with kids and their dinosaur toys, etc.
