Performing Arts

This group shot is part of a series taken for a local Dance Academy. The area we had to use was not ideal for a nice Christmas images and a roll background etc. was not a good choice so I did the next best thing. We did the best image we could take in the location we had to work with and then in Photoshop I extracted the girls and created the background, shadows, and text to give the clients an images that they couldn’t envision from the images that we shot on location. I was helping TNT photography produce these images and provided equipment, some shooting and the photoshop techniques used here.

This image was shot some time ago with film. The image is straight out of the camera, the film used was a tungsten balance film which gives the image that great blue tone. The “matting” was done in photoshop.

This image was photographed with studio lights to provide the illumination for the airplane. The sunset exposure was set with the cameras shutter speed to balance its exposure with that of the airplanes exposure.

This is an exercise in using on-camera type flash units to produce a product photograph. This image was completely lit with multiple on camera type flash units and reflectors. 1-unit behind the shoe pointed up to a silver reflector to light the top of the shoe, 1-unit front at the far left skimming across side of shoe, 1-unit lighting the toe, 1-unit lighting the heel, 1-unit with a long snoot and grid to light the arch area, The image was shot as above and then shot as a silhouette with a white background to make adding the red glow easier in photoshop.

Church at night

1 06 2010

The top image is a single image with very slight photoshop to correct perspective and a little curves to even out exposure on a very contrasty image. The bottom image is a panorama of the church. It is made up of six horizontal images combined in photoshop to give me a 177.6 meg file that would print out a 24″x44.5″ inches. Some perspective and exposure corrections where done in photoshop as well as some layer masking to improve the pano that photoshop created.
