Photoshop Trick

By | Uncategorized

I recently did a photo shoot with the goal to create the look of a young boy hitting a baseball through the window. This image was created using 3 different photographs. The first image of the boy was taken from a high angle and then I had him hold the ball attached to a metal stick for the second shot to make sure the lighting matched. The glass was then later photographed on a white sheet of paper and then blended into the background layer using an effect called “screen” in Photoshop.

Working for Vigor Systems Inc. this week in La Jolla, CA – I would have preferred they bring their product into the studio where I knew I would have full access to anything and everything I needed, but the servers we were photographing were in use and could not be offline for a long period of time. The client wanted a specific angle and early on I realized there were going to be a lot of challenges with the servers highly reflective surface.

With the help of the client we found a store close by that sold large sheets of red paper and I had my assistant tape them together and hold them behind the product, in effect bouncing the red into the top of the server. Below is the end result.
