Photo Manipulation Samples
There are practical
applications for photo manipulation; in this case, I had to deal with
a pair of boots, (also seen in the apparel
section) where one shoelace was too short. The solution here was
to take the one boot that had its laces intact, shoot both sides, and
flip one photo horizontally. The casual observer won't notice the trick,
but since I was working on it this way I left an edge on the closer
boot to help it pop out, since the art would also be used and modified
for black and white solicitation fliers and faxes to dealers.
One toy saw- turned into
two. We required images of the saw in its packaging, and out of the
packaging for solicitations to the dealers. To simplify things, I put
both in the same image for use in solicitation fliers. A Beauty shot
of the toy appears in the product section.
When the Portsmouth Herald had a contest for 'filling the gap' after they removed the Memorial
Bridge's center span, I submitted the photo above; the cruise ship was
the Carnival Celebration, which I had taken a picture of years
before on a cruise in the Bahamas. Note the extra care taken to add
shadows onto the ship, which made it my choice for the contest. The
other one, below, I didn't submit, but had a fun time rendering the
UFO in an old 3-D program called Ray Dream Designer and inserting it
as many times as I could.
