Hey guys, thought I would post a photo that I created from this past weekend's shoot. Don't think I could ever get away with using it in a DPC challenge, so enjoy! And, as always...comments welcome!

More shots available here: Shannon and more...

Wow Jeff! Great stuff. I loved your portfolio on fotki. Very talented use of lighting, and you really make the models comfortable. It really comes across in your work. I wish I had come across these earlier. Just a pleasure to browse through.

Jeff: I think you may have inadvertently showed us one of your current challenge entries.

WOW! Thanks to everyone for replying and posting comments on the photo! I wanted to try something besides the standard headshot, and I'm glad to see that it was so well received.

For all who asked, the setup was prety much like this:

I shot Shannon holding two polaroids in her hands (any polaroids, since I just used them for reference), then I had her open her fingers just enough to drop the polaroids, so I had a photo without them blocking her face. Then I composited the two shots like so:

' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/32265/thumb/257839.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/32265/thumb/257839.jpg', '/') + 1) . '

After that, I took a new photo of just a polaroid (because I wasn't happy with how "clean" the original ones were). I then took a picture of a workbench in the basment of my house. After that it was all compositing work in Photoshop. I took the polaroid and duplicated it, and scattered it on the workbench. I placed the photo of Shannon over top, and then used just the pieces I needed. I cut out the hands so they "came out" of the photos, and then added the necessary shadows to sell the idea. Hope this helps!

Incredible!!! An amazing concept all throughout. The hands coming out of the photos holding another photo is pure genius, remeniscent of MC Escher. The layout on the old workbench is a nice touch as well. I'm with the 20 others (and growing) for a new favorite.

Edit: Typo

Wow, so far 28 people added this to their favorites...in only one day. Thanks everybody! I'm working on some cool new concepts for my next shoot. I have set the bar for myself now. I'll keep you all posted.

And I would have guessed it was done with layers in PS.

I believe that's exactly what he's describing; he "scattered polaroids on the workbench" digitally in Photoshop, by pasting in many rotated clones of his polaroid image.

Looks like those HP commercials.

Just think, 68 more faves and you'll be able to knock Kiwiness and his brothers of the top favorites page. :-D
