About the Book
This book has 41 colored composite pictures (including front and back covers) with talking or dialog. All of them were created by using Adobe Photoshop to combine images from NASA and military websites into composite pictures. Events being described in pictures and captions did not really happen in the way as shown. Please relax and enjoy. You will find many pictures -- space shuttles, military fighter planes, navy ships, destroyers, aircraft carriers, astronauts -- which are not seen anywhere else and could exist only in composite pictures because it is impossible to really happen.
This book is designed, created and written by Luming Marr and is published by www.blurb.com in April 2009. To order, please go to www.blurb.com/bookstore and search for “Luming Marr” to order this book – “Photo Ensemble: Space Shuttle and Military”. Thank you!
A personal note: I ordered this composite picture book from www.blurb.com by using my own credit card, the book was delivered to my doorstep by UPS around six to nine days from the date I put the order. The packaging is really good, the quality of the book and the color of all the pictures is just great, in my opinion, it is even better than “bookstore” quality.

I like to make composite pictures. When I took a photography course in college many years ago, I submitted a composite pictures album as my portfolio and the instructor and my classmates all liked those pictures. There was no PC or Photoshop at that time, so I needed to collect old magazines and cut the images out then manually pasted them together into composite pictures on a piece of paper before I photographed the final work to get the color prints. I am glad that we do have PC's, digital cameras and software tools plus tons of public domain pictures on the internet now to create composite pictures much more easily. It is great fun doing it and I hope you enjoy these composite pictures.
