PostSubject: My trip to the Cemetery   Sat Oct 16, 2010 5:13 am

Huge cemetery about 30 minutes from where i live. headstones reading as far back to the 1860's.
I spent 5 hours or so in front of the computer making the final image. I set my camera up on a tripod and then took a picture of the mausoleum. i then attached my flash to my cord...ran around like crazy, and lit about 20 different parts of the mausoleum, each time i moved, i took a picture
i then took all the images and made them all the same color and roughly what i thought they should look like. then i layered them all in photoshop, only picking out the parts that i liked, then i made a quick couple over-all edits and then you get the final image

this is a new style i tried, and i loved the hell out of it. hope to do more of it in the future


tell me what you think of them:


BEFORE




AFTER




let me know what you really think. hearing "its cool", or, "its just ok" really sucks.

It's cool.

I know sweet fuck all about photography so I doubt I could say something like "I love how the light brings out the colours of the grass" but it looks pretty sweet looking to me. Very Happy

I really like it before the render. But it is a very good photo before the render nonetheless.

it would be so badass if it was at night. MAKE IT AT NIGHT!!!!!!!!!!!! thats my expert opinion because im a master at photography and stuff. I like it though. it doesnt look real which i like. nighttime, if thats possible lol, would make it so badass methinks. With the light stuff you did, it would make it look like it was glowing or something lol. But i dont know anything so i trust your judgment lol.

hahah, thanks dark. its alright, i figured as much, i just said that so people couldnt do the cop out.

byd, no, its a new effect. it does mimic other effects (HDR) that i do commonly, but this one was a far more in depth processes. now that i look at it today, i think i was too heavy on the final sets of edits. but i still like the overall image

i actually have a series of doors. i simply love different doors. i mean, i dont want to get all weird artsy, but doors are the enterence of a structure that people do many types of things in...and something so simple and so easy looks so different in so many ways....there are 100's and 1000's and millions of different doors. i just think they are all unique

sadly i was so concerned with this final picture, i didnt actually get one of the door. i can take my original image though....its large enough so i can get a decent sized print of the door.

I really like the tree branches. Also the way the light comes around the bricks is cool.

I think it looks pretty cool, honestly. It's very shiny haha. One thing I did notice is how in the original it's daylight, and you can see that through the door, and it the second you made it night but you can still see daylight through the door. Not really a huge deal I guess, because you obviously dulled it down, but I guess it's a little inconsistent. Overall it looks very cool, definitely better work than I could do

well, the whole image is rather inconsistent. look at the shadows, there isnt one light source, there appears to be like 5 or 6
i did brighten the window and darken the sky, but i didnt make it night...i just dulled the meticulously bright sky

Update:

i actually have to craft my own BOOK. there are online services that do that rather cheap, im getting a 20 or so pager for 30$? anyrate, ive decided to do the entire book in a theme (art people get all wet over that)
so my theme is interestingly lit architecture and doors. i think it will be cool

really nice picture brute, i really like the layering effect that you get from actually taking the time to light it at different places, gives it an almost luminescant feel. Looks like a VERY well rendered hi def 3-D image actually. Great job
