Dang, I'm good! (with a little help)
Here are some recent examples of things that turned out great, and I said 'why thank you' when complemented. Well, it wasn't just me.
this was shot for a new client, a major museum. It's a painting, that is 10'x10', it hangs in the stairwell at the Museum. This is how it looked when we first photographed it. Yep, that's the top of a train signpost in the middle of the painting. You can get an idea of the size of the painting by looking at Calieb's hand holding the color checker on the lower left.
This is the raw file. We shot several angles of two different horses. They ended up asking for eight finished images.
This is the final image of one angle. The clipping path on this one horse took over ten hours to complete.
Here is a close-up, so that you can see the intricacies of the clipping path.
Thanks go out to Shelley Jackson and Jack White who spend a bunch of hours making me look really good.
Not all of our images require this much retouching. The following are some complicated photos that had just a minimum of retouching.
