    Mask a motorbike

    by Dug » Sat Jul 12, 2008 6:21 pm

    I was shooting a friends bike in the studio this afternoon and had a play with the light wands.

    Would anyone like to see what they can do with these 2 images ?

    The camera was on a tripod so they should line up OK.

    I like what you've done with it. Specially how the light wands appear to be reflected off the bike. Very much looks like that's how you took the photo. Only think I'd suggest would be to crop off the right side to get rid of the white architrave.

    Hope you don't mind, I was just having fun and decided to see how far I could push the images.

    With a kind of credo of only one TRICK at a time I think I prefer the second VN example.

    You could always manipulate and create images like this. It is just so much faster and easier in photoshop than creating it in camera and then airbrushing in the details.

    Only the methods have changed.

    Very true Dug, not only that, but digital image manipulation on a computer to me is FUN, and isn't that supposed to be what photography for the amateur is all about? The computer is an extension of the tools we now use for the digital format, and as a tool it isn't any different to what film users have been able to do for a very long time - manipulating images and creating effects.

    Just playing and still looking at that lighted one Doug. That could be very interesting. Clever with those lights mate.

    A little play and its at 3200 x 2400 at the moment with the image used from here.

    Anyway, need to start somewhere, so version 1. It'll lead to other ideas.

    All the best Doug, have to play with those lights of yours. Thats neat stuff and clever Doug.

    Danny.
