I captured a backround a while ago with the intention of compositing a skater or scooter rider into the shot and this turned out to be my first personal project of 2014.
I wanted to show the background out of camera prepped, and then with a couple of minor additions.
Here is the prepped background:
With contrast added:
With additional light source to give the effect of more light coming from the lights in the subway to then light the subject:
Here is the out of camera shot of Tom. Always helps when my subjects turn up prepped, and he had all the additional gear needed to help pull this off. He also did a great job with the pose and also facial expression. (you'll see from most of my work, I tend to go for a more serious 'Mean Business' kind of look rather than smiles)
And here is the final image.......click this link to see bigger version.
I also wanted to play with some different tonal effects to see how this would look. (Basically some play around time for me with different effects). See all below.
More projects on the way so keep an eye on the blog. In meantime, if any of you have a concept in mind for anything like this, always feel free to get in touch to discuss your idea. Thanks for reading.
