As for my previous post, this is some of the work behind another image for Headspin Advertising and City Lade. This time working with local fresh hip-hop artist Qalifa!
The final image (without advertising profile):
Again, this is a composite. I found a decent location, not far from City Lade (the mall), and made 5 exposures (for later blending into an HDR). These originally looked like this:
After blending these in Photomatix Pro, and further in Adobe Bridge/Photoshop, I had to cut Qalifa out from this studio shot:
Not too hard, but again, this might be on huge posters and has to be done well…the following screenshots show some layers and processing for the final image.
As you can se from these, Qalifa is cut out and blended with the background with a more dramatic sky and sun. The snow is again part of the winter theme.
Lots of work, but a great learning process as well as GREAT fun! I think it looks quite good, and hope you like it!!
