Ok ... so maybe I didn't use any smoke and mirrors, but I did use a lot of Photoshop. Here are a few images from my shoot yesterday that should raise the hairs on all you photography purests. None of these images are "straight out of the camera" ... and yet, the model LOVES them!

All these images were taken during a four hour shoot in my living room against gray seamless paper. My only light source was my three Alien Bee lights. All the backgrounds have been manipulated or replaced in Photoshop (total editing time for the 18 images I gave the model one day after her shoot - about 5 hrs, give or take lunch).

This is a composite of three images - model (lit with one AB-400), barn wood and sky/wheat field.


This is a composite of two images - model (wearing a wig and lit by 3 ABs) and a background I took at a concert years ago then enhanced in Photoshop


This is a composite of two images - model (lit by one AB-400) and the sky/wheat field from the previously mentioned shot. Converted to B&W in Photoshop


And, this was shot against gray seamless paper. Photoshop was used to smooth out the wrinkles and holes in my paper and add the text.


BTW. Model's name is Ambyr and she 18 years old, stands 5'8" tall and is relatively new to the modeling in the DFW area. Look for more from her in the coming months.

Do you have a library of photo backgrounds to pull from? Excellent photo work even if most of it was done with PS.

I try to use my "B-Roll" images for backgrounds whenever I can. If I see a great looking fire in a fireplace, I shoot it. If the clouds look amazing, I take a few shots. I'm always looking for images that I could use for backgrounds. As for Photoshop ... I haven't found any masking programs that I like, so I do everything by hand. If anyone has a good mask plug-in please let me know ... I'm always open to try something new.
