I find this really inspiring and I want to try something similar on my next shoot. Let's have a cosplay photo before and after thread.

Impressive edit, but would have saved the editor so much trouble if it wasn't done with that fucking ceiling light there

I was thinking this too. The lighting is really poor as well, but the end result looks great.
>>
Damn I can't find this guy's work but we was amazing for being able to edit in an entire futuristic control room for a cosplayer who was just sitting in a chair.

The crazy part was that he actually took the time to adjust the lighting and shadows so everything looked super believable.

Pretty sure that was Peck Photography, same guy as a lot of pictures in this thread.

Do people really like this garbage? It's so unrelentingly unrealistic, why even bother to cosplay in the first place? Just shoop the model in.
>>
>>8727553
why? He obviously just extracted the girl, and he didn't even need to bother with her hand with the wrench. It's all hidden by the robot head so he just cut it all off.
>>
>>8727827
I was just going to say this, all of these look really badly done. The first one in particular. Somehow the person editing the picture made her hair look like a cheapo party city wig
>>
>>8727526
Not reaally????
>>
>>8727878
Yeah this might just be my personal taste but photos that are SO over processed just make me assume that the costume itself is fake too. Add all the backgrounds that you want but ffs stop adding shiny lights all over the model.

>>8727493 is probably my favorite in this thread so far just because the photog didn't mess with the cosplayer that much, and it actually fits the movie aesthetic.
>>
>>8727719
This was actually a really cool pic to begin with, I think showing some restraint with the editing would do it a lot more justice.
>>
>>8727479
I like that they actually made the effects instead of just doing Photoshop/CG for it
>>
>>8727523
This is so shitty, why do all this and not photoshop those horrible wrinkles from the cloth (that's obviously sewn badly to produce said wrinkles)
>>
>>8727872
Bitch, please
>>
>>8727479
Everyone is online co-signing the hell out of this photo, and I'm not seeing what's so amazing about it.
>>
>>8727964
It bothers me that she's looking out of the sights while flying (backward?). Something about that seems off.
>>
>>8727827
The photo really here looks good
>>8727680
>>
>>8727900
He's at his best when he takes care of the lighting and backgrounds before he edits. He can get some really killer edits but I do love his subtle work
>>
>>8727479
all that shoop and he couldn't un-square her ass?
>>
>>8727964
It doesn't look like a blurry glowy video game background, maybe that's it. Considering the rest of the examples here.
>>
>>8728008
I don't get this style of lighting. Looks more like Tron than Spirited Away.
>>
>>8727496

This is the best thread we've had in a while.
>>
Why is everyone losing their shit over Beethys photo? It's hardly a new idea, but everyones like, whoa what a good idea...really? He photoshoped out a chair, theres togs out there that make the background of the composition from a 3D created background which takes huge more amount of time. I don't understand, but i guess it's like cosplayers who take months to make a costume and doesn't get a look in and some fake gamurgurl comes around with a store bought bikini and gets thousands of likes?
>>
Also the before photo is already edited...
>>
>>8728428
THANK YOU. Yes it is. Her face, her body... yep. Also see:
>>8726264
>>
>>8727529
Her face looks so dead though
Not stoic like 18, just like nothing
>>
Why would they make a gun that has that much kickback, doesn't make sense. Doesn't that gun fire like lasers, or is it it can only fire once?
>>
>>8728506
it only has that much kickback when a woman handles it
>>
>>8727493
>tie color's not even remotely accurate
what the fuck? how is it even possible to make a harry potter cosplay this inaccurate when there's so many places you can buy a proper Gryffindor tie online and IRL
>>
>>8727496
The first one doesn't make sense...they're not even the same books.
>>
>>8727602
This I consider photography.
>>8727530
This I consider graphic design.
>>
>>8728603
I'm more baffled by the wand desu.
I'm not even sure what character it's supposed to be...
>>
>>8728619
This is accurate. It just depends on what the model wants really because I can do either.
>>
>>8728603

But she's hot as fuck, so sorry, your argument becomes invalid, you sound like just another jellie bitch.
>>
>>8728634
oh shit I didn't even notice the wand, man that shit just looks like a twig
also I think she's supposed to be Hermione?
>>8728666
how does her being "hot" invalidate the fact that her costume is inaccurate due to the tie colors being completely wrong
>sage for OT

>>8727827
I also enjoy these. These are kind of more like cosplay + art and not just regular cosplay pictures. Photomanipulation and such is very popular with other subjects, why not do it with cosplay too if it makes an interesting photo?
>>
>>8727479
Where do people learn to do stuff like this other than school? Any good tutorials or books people know of? I just love it.

I'm a sucker for things that look like movie posters. I love big dramatic stuff

anon...the point is that she can't reach the one she needs. that's why the guy is getting it for her.
>>
>>8727533
I don't why the cosplayer didn't just do cracked makeup? There are tons of good tutorials out there by great sfx artists.
>>
>>8729194
Probably because they weren't cosplaying for that scene and instead was a second thought during the shoot.

You wouldn't learn shit like that in school.
>>
>>8728954
Kek ! it looks so ridiculous
>>
>>8729302
depends on if school has a class about composites
if it's a multi-major school they probably would (film/tv)
>>
Quick, someone post the one with the race queen with the water effect made by two camera guys spitting in front of the lense.
>>
>>8727827
I think it'd be fun to have a few super photoshopped cosplay pics of myself. Just for fun, it's like you're actually in the game, anime etc.
>>
>>8729164
I wouldn't see a movie with a poster this trash.
>>
>>8729302
Not in a basic photography class, but in a school with a Photography degree you would learn most of the skills needed to key out an image and swap backgrounds in composites. Even better if the school also offers Graphic Design.
>>
>>8729353
Lies. I'm sure you've seen Avengers, Star Wars, Lord of the Rings and other tent pole movies
>>
>>8729356
No I haven't seen Avengers. I have seen Lord of the Rings and Star Wars which have completely different styles of posters.

You only see movies with "your preferred" movie poster style? Virgin fatty detected. Noone would invite you to the movies with that attitude kek.
>>
>>8729586
That is awesome

To the people saying 'who even likes this?!' the answer is a lot of people. A lot of people like this.
>>
>>8729353
That's alright anon, we all have our opinions and I respect yours
>>
>>8728619

This isn't graphic design though. Maybe a graphic designer knows enough about Photoshop to do this, but this is really more in the photography realm than it is design.
>>
>>8729302
No, you wouldn't learn exactly how to make a picture like that. But you would learn the basics in school and then you apply the basics to do more outstanding things. That's what creativity is.

>>8729298
This for example. School teaches you lens flare, you then take it to the next level and use that on the end of the broom. They teach you dodge & burn, and you use that to make her prop look like the "real" thing. Teach you to overlay color, you then make her hair realistically purple.

You could pick apart all of these pictures and point out what parts you'd be taught in school. All the stuff I mentioned are things I learned in the classes I took in high school, kek. It just depends on if you're good at them or not.

The whole joke is that they're the same height because they're both girls.
>>
>>8730441
Wh...where are his pants?
>>
>>8735285
Her, and it looks like she's wearing black shorts.
>>
>>8735285
They probably don't want their pants to get stained, since they're white.
>>
>>8729586
This is a cool idea, but now I'm confused as to why the water would even be there? It doesn't look like rain...
>>
>>8735285
Like others said, due to stains. Plus if the lower half is not in the shot then why bother?
>>
>>8735507
Most people won't notice the rain isn't right though. Just like with Beethy's photo, the hair flip is all wrong for what the image is trying to portray.
>>
>>8730445
w-what if he cuts his hand?
>>
>>8738614
Unsharpened blade most likely, cuts can still happen, but harder to get cut from just holding it still

Yet another article where Hayley Elise had to steal all her content from a 4chan thread. Bitch cant you find your own material and do your own research?
>bragging about cosplaying for so long
>still relying on 4chan to spoon feed you material and opinions
>>
>>8738630
holy shit that photo is awful
>>
>>8738630
Half those photos were crap in her article, and I see she was smart not to mention Anna FIscher helping in that Norway shoot
>>
>>8738630
funny Beethy's photo didn't make it. Ron Gejon's copy cat version is better than the original?
>>
>>8739218
Hayley hates Beethy. You will never see her use one of his images. Mark my words.
>>
>>8739218
Gejon can't edit for shit, all his good edits are done by others
>>
>>8728022
Agreed, especially considering almost all the bathhouse scenes have WARM colours, not cold ones.
>>
>>8727827
Yeah they seem more like artistic photography editing than cosplay photography to me. Half of the costume and the whole background are shooped in and they look more like a painting than a photo.
>>
>>8739218

Um.... Beethy's photo got a whole article including video.

Because it's probably literally a cheap arse costume made from clothes already in her wardrobe/her father's tie
>>
>>8729191
Uh, the book the guy is getting for her in the first pic isn't even in the second pic though
>>
>>8728422
Uh maybe because this looks more realistic?

I suppose you think the orcs in The Hobbit are superior to the ones in Lord of the Rings because they were CGI instead of makeup effects
>>
>>8740402
It's probably a behind the scene pic from a few different takes so they probably grabbed a few different books.

>>8740420
Pretty sure they're bitching because it's a simple trick, not because how realistic it is. The article makes it seem like it's a time intensive process when it's really only a few minutes in Photoshop. It's like saying someone is fantastic in an article when all they do is stick some flashlights into a chest piece compared to someone who wires up a LED system from scratch, complete with a programmable sequence.
