20 x 16

Hi all,

I used to have a tutorial for this but now when I want it I can't find it.

I have been working on this for far too long now:-0 but I think it needs a junction between a floor and a wall where I've indicated on the attachment, and maybe a shadow? it seems the photographer must have added a new background and took the original out.

Does anyone else think it needs one?

Any help pointing me in the right direction would be appreciated.

By the way, it's going to be printed 16" x 20" on satin paper.

John.

Re: 20 x 16

I am unsure if it really needs a shadow for wall meeting floor. Pretty sure that the photographer lit the scene to minimise shadows on a continuous background.

There is already shadow detail underneath the group. My example needs fine tuning as it is probably too much. But if this ok then the way I did it:

  • Dup background and apply curves layer darken considerably to reveal the shadow too far.
  • Merge curves layer and duplicate. Then add a black mask to hide all
  • Paint with white on the mask to reveal the shadow area
  • Apply Gaussian blur and reduce opacity to taste

Thanks Jesterjeni,

Yep been there done that ;-) didn't think it looked right, thanks anyway.

Thanks Tony.

I think I'll go with that, it does look much better with more of a shadow below them.

Cheers.....John
