Re: Water Dress (AMAZING work!) - Possibly NSFW - parcial nudity

Hi Chris (and others)
I am finding this thread very interesting, especially the indepth discussion about calculations. I use calculations regularly to create masks 9either for image extraction or partial transparency), but have never tried the offset and scale options. Chris, how did you decide on your calculations for these images? (was it just by trial and error, looking for contrast etc, as I do, or is there a set of mathematical principles at work?)
also, I tried your calculations on JCB's splash image, but got a very weird looking mask - must be doing something wrong. I didn't know what was required with apply image to clean up the mask (have only used this for slight colour adjustments on composite RGB channels, not on alpha channels)
help?
I recently posted a query re a book purchase I hope to make this month - Katrin Eismann's "Photoshop Masking and compositing" or her "Photoshop Restoration and retouching"? I can only buy one at this point. I love compositing but probably need more input re retouching at this stage. Which one, which one?

Yes, Thanks for your information. :P

Paulo Vainer's is a phtographer or hi-end retoucher ?

Didn't find this amazing work in his website

He's a photographer.

I couldn't either, but, I read around the internet that was Paulo's team who did the job.

I wish I could tell you. Years ago I could have when I was doing it on a daily basis. Now it is purely instinct and I'm surprised I am pulling any of it off at all.
I initially do go by contrast, looking at each channel. But other things come to play also. Like the amount of color in an area, density, luminosity, hue, saturation. And Color theory plays a lot in it, like what color will cancel another out etc.
If you are looking for a book on retouching as you stated in your other post, then stick with the restoration and retouching book. It does have a good deal of retouching stuff in the back end that you can learn and branch out from. Since you have been doing a lot of compositing, then you can hold off on the masking book till you think it is necessary. It might already be a lot of stuff you know already.

Chris,

One little question... When you need to mask a person, do you also use calculations or do you do it by hand?

Thanks!

Andre

Depends.

A while ago I had actions set up for a cmyk workflow that would isolate just the shadows, mids, hilights, quarters, and fleshtones.
Then I would fine tune them for use as is and then combine them into a mostly complete silo mask.
Things work differently with rgb and calculations as they do for the other color spaces. THere is some relearning to do. But it is definitely easier to do in cmyk.

Chris
