Hi,
Just thought I post a new photo that I just created using the new Photoshop CS. It really has some nice new features and makes certain tasks easier than with previous versions. The photo is of Susan Schmidt and was shot in August 2002 at the Texas III shoot (one of Rolando's workshops). I combined two shots of her to get a unique front and back perspective in one shot. The camera was the lowly Canon G2, my backup camera now to the 10D.

Any comments are welcome?



Cheers,
rfs

I tried to think of some constructive criticism but couldn't. I REALLY like the shot!

Thanks for your praise. Here is another one that is a much more complicated blend of two photos of the same model. This one was taken at the same session as the other photo (Texas 3 - August 2002). The model is Barbara Cali and the photos were taken seconds apart without the chair moving. I used severaal different techniques in Photoshop CS to blend the two together. Comments on this one are also welcome.



Cheers,
rfs

Hmmm...I don't know. In the first shot I find the right hand portion to be much softer than the left hand an dthat feels awkward to me.

In the second shot, I can totally pick up the seam between the images. Sorry. It might be easier to miss if the leg of the chair on the left didn't fade before reaching the model's leg.

Good try, but maybe have another go. At least with the second shot.

Cheers!

Second more difficult

Yes, the second shot was more difficult and there are several things I missed. I have trouble with shadows and my eyes are not that good any more. But its fun to play with these.

Now concerning your comment on the first photo, the right hand side is supposed to be softer than the left as I was trying to suggest depth of field and the photo with get a bit softer as you move back in the photo since I was giving the implication that the left image was the one I had focused on. Does that make sense?

Cheers,
rfs

Hey there, yes it does make sense. The problem however is perspective. Even though the waists of the girls look even, the girl on the right looks taller. And yet you have her placed behind the girl on the left. This feels awkward because generally speaking, in a 2D image larger objects are perceived as being closer unless there is a frame of refrence for locaton AND size. Here, you have no such reference and the shot feels awkward. It looks like a taller girl who is standing right beside the shorter girl and yet is blurred. To fix this, maked the blurred figure appear smaller and therefore, further away. It should make the image feel better.

Then again there is the possibility that my car shopping is damaging more brain cells than initially anticipated and I could be way off base. But I've said what I've said and I'm pushing the continue button and moving on to food.

Cheers!
