I have been doing winter sports photography for a while now and when my sister asked me to try something a little different for my nieces team I wasn’t quite sure how it would all turn out. Taking a subject out of the scene is not really my thing. I can appreciate the art of it but it wasn’t something I wanted to do. Well the new year is maybe a good time to try something new. No promises for great success and no risk. This is my first attempt (and maybe my last…the whole process was a bit time-consuming – probably because I am a newbie at it) …after a few hours hovering over the computer a few replays of PS6 tutorials – I am happy how it turned out. My sis also says the girls were tickled with their images.
1. I shot 2 poses for each player using a background light for separation.
2. Remove the background for each player in PS6.
2. Create the team composite -this was fairly easy 🙂
3. Find interesting background (I bought this off the internet)
