Re: How to: "Annie leibovitz' Queen Elizabeth" loo

Hello All,
I joined up to see if I could get the instructions regarding the retouch/treatment of Annie L's portrait of the Queen. Is that actually posted somewhere?
Any help would be much appreciated.

I had assumed that the second photo with the landscape background was taken in front of a very large oil painting at the salubrious location. Seems a bit 'tacky' superimposing Her Majesty on anything.

personally I think that the pictures are meant to look like old paintings if you see these small pictures...the effect is nice...

if you watch the youtube video and even look at the hires versions of those photos there is some serious post work going on. Annie's early work had virtually no post but now with the way commercial and editorial photography is going.... post is a huge part of creating her "look". there is a TON of painting with light and exposure painting.

Pixel

She takes a lot of pictures for just one shot. When I used to do stuff for her, there could be a blending of at least 8 shots to get one. He has a real hot spot for getting perspective correctly.
