RHP footdown flyer image [Aug. 18th, 2009|04:15 pm]

Shot this last night in the VIP lounge at Ruby Kitchen for this month's Footdown flyer. I left the extra space up top when composing to leave the graphic designer room for the text. I'm going to start trying to do write ups and diagrams again like I used to back in the good ol' days, so here goes:

Main: alien bee's b1600 boomed up high for top lighting turned all the way up and plugged into it's own vagabond
Rim: white lightning x3200 raised up seven feet and angled down and set to half power. plugged into it's own vagabond. 10 degree grid spot to cut back on flare.

Photoshop: Increased fill light in raw before moving picture from lightroom 2 to cs4. Selected subjects, bike, and couch using polyganol and magnetic lasso to drop the background to black. Dodged highlights, added lucis on the whyeth setting but applied locally using a layer mask. Color balance layer to add more yellows to highlights and blues to shadows. Ran Elmakias "Deep Tone" action. Smart Sharpened.

You really got it going on with that one dawg. Now thats how you do it. You could make an album cover with that one. Nice work. You should teach that stuff.
