Fresh out of Photoshop: sports compositing
Intention for the campaign was to just show the sports and the girl – no extras.
That’s why there are (almost) no artificial products (such as a watch, buildings or power poles) in the picture. For women who set the focus on the sports and themselves.
The classical american portrait shot has been lit up by a 3-light-setup. The background is a non-hdr (yes, I think about shooting in hdr next time for both, background and even the model).
It’s postprocessed by some skin retouching techniques, liquified, some colour and contrast adjustments, bleach bypass, a vignette and the compositing of course. Birds, sunlight, and rays have been added artificially. My typical hyperrealistic and super-edgy look is part of the game. Now we hope to win the pitch …
The job required a color pic, but there’s a black & white version below, too.
