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.
who needs Photoshop when you have some buds
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.
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
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.
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
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?
>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
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?
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.
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.
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.
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.
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
Agreed, especially considering almost all the bathhouse scenes have WARM colours, not cold ones.
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.
It's probably a behind the scene pic from a few different takes so they probably grabbed a few different books.
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.
