  • playing with painter 8, knight photo

    I just got this new background painted from a friend, mother-in-law made the costumes. Wanted to get an opionion on the painting effect on my son and if you think it goes with the background good.

    Hi

    I think the background works great. Do you think the subject stands out a little too sharply against the background? Maybe feather the edges or try a very subtle drop shadow?

    Cheers

      Hi all new here to me it looks like you should have shown more of the prop
      Just a thought

        I like the concept and I think the background works great.

        Trying to get so much background, to me, resulted in an image that took a little away from your primary objective: a great shot of the knight. I agree with Eman about the prop.

        A little drop shadow would make the overall effect look a little more natural, too. (good call, Duv)

        Overall, this is a winning concept.

          If you're doing this kind of thing commercially or even just for friends and relatives, I think this has a lot of potential for a "photo-art" look, too.

            That was an excellent job, how much of his outfit did you paint?

            I disagree about the dropshadow though. Studio photographers go to a lot of trouble to avoid getting shadows on their backdrops, so retouchers shouldn't be going in and adding them. I don't think it makes it look any more natural. If anything, you could blur a background if it is too busy.
