    Re: Wave over a person

    I'm no photographer and only will be guessing but....

    Lock off the camera and take shot of the tide, wait for tide to go out and lie down (approach from waves, footprints!) or other side and Photoshop . Take as many shots of the tide (insert correct term for it here) as needed and get back to the studio.

    I would then guess a pretty neat masking job for the sea and some liquify/warp to transform it. Shadows added and or enhanced by d&b and or a drop shadow on the sea mask layer.

    Of course I am guessing and I would be interested to hear how others with more technical know how would approach it.

      Clay models and applying texture and color
      by Pics2
      I'm trying to use clay models in my studio photography. For example, I want to twist and bend objects in unrealistic way (scissors, chair legs etc), or to make miniature objects. I already made bended parts of objects out of clay. My idea is to use clay models for shadows, shape and perspective. But,...
