  • Today's artsy: Cardboard Chrysler

    The late afternoon sun was coming in through a slit in the blinds and making cool shadows on the wall. The water bottle was the original object in the light; I grabbed my iPhone and got some pix. Then I put a cardboard model of New York City's Chrysler Building in the light and got some more iPhone pix.

    The results were treated with various Topaz Texture Effects.

          We always say "garbage in garbage out".. not in your case ... you seem to always present your best work...your simple subjects demonstrate your skill at observation, photography, and foresight in your planning... good work!

              Faking Backlit Sunset light on Model
              by richardnyc
              I was wondering if anyone has seen a thread on this. I have been playing around with lens flare in PS then making that layer warmer to make the non back lit image warmer and softer...Any ideas would be appreciated

              Simulating candle light
              by mcdronkz
              This shot was lit with a single strobe, but I figured it would be nicer to make it look like it was lit with a candle light.

              However, it seems a bit harder than I imagined it to be. The shadows on the faces of the parents are not that hard to figure out, but the rest is...

              Hard light but nice skin
              by konamura
              Hey guys !

              I see a lot of pictures with a nice hard light, some harsh shadows, very fashion, and the result is amazing ! But I don't understand how we can "protect" the model's skin from awful highlights... ?

              Of course, a good D&B can fix a lot, but it's not...

              How to handle outdoor light that blows highlights?
              by willdoak
              I've attached (part of) a picture of an "audience" inside a building that has very bright outside light streaming through the rear windows. I'd like to photograph the people without large patches of blown highlights at the back.

              Any suggestions on how to handle this situation?...

              Walking on Water
              by Cleve
              I'm just getting to grips with compositing and would like to know how to make my model seem like they are walking on water. I will be working from two shots, my model and a backdrop with water. Many thanks
