"Photoshop illustration"


Salt Lake City, US
          



This corner of the site is kind of quiet, so I thought I'd post a photo illustration I created for a client of mine. The composite image was created using four photos. The model's face and the above water portion were taken by a professional photographer I often work with for brochure photos. There are three below-water shots that I took myself using an F5 and a 20mm 2.8 Nikkor. I set the camera in a partially submerged aquarium so I had a view below water. The model's body, the below water spa and a few bubbles are from one image. The bubble streams from the water jets come from two additional shots I took without the model. The background landscape is a licensed stock photo.

I had drum scans made of the selected images of sufficient resolution to create a 2300 x 2300 pixel image for offset printing (CMYK).

This shot would be impossible to take as one image. Water refraction magnifies everything below water. Our Nikonos test shots gave the model a huge body and a tiny head. When the jets are running, the spa instantly fills with bubbles that cloud the water and obscure the model. The waves and splashes made working at the waterline impossible.

I'd like to encourage others to post links to their own Photoshop inventions.

BJ-

Just re-read your "bio" and visited your website. Great images. Winter Olympics 2002, huh? Sounds like fun.

Thanks Anthony.

Actually, we're planning a New Zealand trip during the winter games. Only a small percentage of tickets will be available for local residents I've lost my enthusiasm with all the corruption associated with the organizing entities.

An architect in our office went to New Zealand last November and to China this past summer. The images (and the vacations) were "magnificent" (her words, but I wouldn't doubt it.) I can empathize with your lack of enthusiasm with the organizers.

Happy Shooting,
Anthony

PS
I enjoy reading your posts in other photography forums.
