    Perspective and size of model in composite
    petersweden
    Hi

    I have made a rough cut out of my model and made a quick shadow and colour matching. I am struggling on how large I should make her in the composite. Can you help me find a good size of the model and explain how I should think in order to get a realistic size of the model in the composite?...

    How to correctly size a person in a composite
    petersweden
    Hi

    Do you have any advice for correctly sizing a person placed in a composite? Imagine someone composited onto a bridge. How do I know how big they should be (if I didnt photograph a stand-in at the time of the shoot if the bridge)?

    Regards

    Peter

    Draft composite - what would you do
    petersweden
    Hi

    I want to create a composite where my model seems to be hanging from the ledge of a cliff. I have done a very rough draft of the composite just to see if it is worth spending a few hours doing a real composite.

    What is your opinion? I am also not sure how to determine her...

    Preparation for an ambitious composite shoot!

    I have been asked by a friend to do a series of 4 seasonally-themed shots for a cycle shop. The idea is to put together four 'story' images of things happening - rough example might be a guy riding through the shop with people jumping out of his way.

    This clearly calls for some compositing...

    How to reduce an image size
    ogee
    I have downloaded a large number of professionally scanned pages from old newspapers and the files are huge (5MB+)...I would like to share a large number of them but want to lessen the file size as well as highlight passages on each page without increasing the file size. I also want to be able to print...

  • How to correctly size model

    Hi

    I am working on a composite of a female warrior in a forest. How can I size her correctly? Any other suggestions on how to improve the composite are also appreciated.

    Thanks

    Re: How to correctly size model

    This has been briefly touched upon in another post
    http://www.retouchpro.com/forums/pho...composite.html

    Just remember you the viewer (camera) will see the horizon at your current eye level regardless of standing, sitting or being up a 10 foot ladder!

    So for this image the appearance is that you are viewing the female from a low position or she is particularly tall. I would suggest the hidden horizon line could be around the area where the sword grip and hand form a 'v' shape

        Hi r
        Many moons ago on RetouchPro I saw a post by someone who made reference to a Deviant Art post Kiola who referred to a sheet prepared by James Pray back in 2010 titled Placing figures in perspective. Try copying this link below to get to it. I would also add Steve Chaplin has done quite a few videos on RetouchPro which have lots of useful information as do his books.
