I had to create a bunch of before and after images of some of my work for a portfolio and thought I might drop them in here as well. Basically it is just the original model shot in the studio and the final photoshopped version. Any comments appreciated :)

Great stuff......reminds me of how much I suck.

These are awesome - I really love them as before and afters, especially because it shows a photoshop nub like me what some of the possibilities are. For example...your flying witch and the two shots taken of both legs to allow them to be combined into a suspended one.

Some great images in there. You should post a link to this in the "Photoshop Is Not Photography" thread to make a point ;)

Very creative! They are all really really nice!

*sigh* kiwiness when I grow up I wanna be you. They're wonderful.

GREAT STUFF!

Pretty cool Gary, have recently started experimenting with similar stuff so great to see how you do it! How do you mask the hair? I usually shoot on a chroma green paper backround and use color range, I am kind of happy but still not quite... Any tips?

Hey nice to see you again. The best method I have for masking hair is a filter called Vertus Mask. The best method around that I have found and I have tried everything :) It is very exact!

Thank you so much for posting those, Kiwiness! That's some really amazing work. The before and afters are especially helpful, especially for us beginners - I think I've learned a whole new avenue of THINKING about shooting just from looking! Absolutely inspiring.
01/10/2008 07:53:58 PM · #10
WOW - that was such a lesson for me!

Thanks for sharing, it's really people like you to give those less able the information we yearn for - the HOW DO THEY DO IT!

Thank you - very generous!

I love your work. Thanks for sharing these! It's inspiring to know what goes on behind the scenes.

(though I am severely disappointed that the underwater scenes weren't real!) j/k

I just sent you an email... Love that you posted this.

and its been said.. but here goes again: When I grow up I wanna be you!! lol
01/10/2008 08:24:40 PM · #16
The only words that come to mind are "master" and "genius". You, my friend, are friggin amazing and I wish I was half as talented.

...that said, you're apparently no photographer! ;-)
01/10/2008 08:31:49 PM · #17
Just like the scene in the Wizard of Oz where Toto pulls back the curtain.

Wicked.

Masterpieces! Really enjoyed that, love the illustrative backgrounds! ;]
01/10/2008 08:56:15 PM · #21
Wow - great example of what can be done! And that you need a good concept of how you want the final to look like! I guess each of these took hours of planning and preparation before "assembling" the product. These works are quite an inspiration!

Wow, just fantastic! Exceptional work in combining art, skills and technique. Really awesome...

very nice!! I learned a coupla tricks, too
01/10/2008 09:40:15 PM · #24
Incredible.

Where do you find your backgrounds? I know that many are composites, but are all the elements your photos?
01/10/2008 09:41:55 PM · #25
crazy!! Gary you rock! Thanks for sharing.
