Today, I decided to participate in a photography challenge from a FB group I’m a member of. The challenge was to create a picture using light. You had to choose a windlight that had no lights and create your light source from projectors and other methods. Here’s what I did! Hope you like it! It’s a new technique for me that took me most of the day to get right. I’m not sure I reached the goal but I am pleased with the result!
I’ll try to describe what I did to get this…First, after setting up my scene, choosing my pose and adjusting my avatar and camera angle, I took the picture using Phototools in Firestorm set to life-like, shadows turned on, ambient occlusion, etc. I also upped the avatar details to max (you can find this in the final tab of Phototools). I pulled it into Photoshop, added a tilt to it using free transform and filled in the open areas with black, merged the image and added a few filters like detail extractor, tonal contrast and bleached bypass in order to draw out the details without destroying the overall image. I’m very pleased with the result. I hope you are too! See my starting image and final image below!
For my outfit, I chose to wear the amazing rings from my sponsor, Elle Boutique, Spell On You Rings, to put a spell on you. Add in eye appliers from another sponsor, ::MD:: Design, in a blue shade combined with the Millie Off Shoulder Long hoodie and long socks from Addams, and you have an alluring getup for putting a spell on that special someone. <3 As always, see below for credits and my Flickr for a full resolution version!
