    Shot this at a local meetup just yesterday. One of the models brought a lovely police officer outfit and I happen to have some prop guns with me. I really wanted to do some kind of effects shot with the props, so I was delighted to hear someone had a costume like that!

    This one is out of my league as far as editing goes so i won't say anything, but I couldn't help but post when I noticed -- She isn't even pulling the trigger :p
    Just saying though, I love the look at first glace but if you look at it again it the effect is extremely overplayed, for lack of a better word.. The lighting difference is like she's holding a flamethrower or an rpg, not a pistol.
    But I am just an amateur so I suppose I'm talking out of my ace at this point :p

    Bottom line: great work if your not someone who wants to get into technicalities.. Well great work regardless. amazing edit IMO.

    Yeah I told her to hold the trigger down.... In most of the others it is, but I just loved that campy cheezy expression, so I used this take. I suppose I could go back and just composite over the pulled trigger (like fixing the hat).

    It looks way over the top compared to the original, but when viewed on its own, the reactions I get are that it looks natural. It's tough for me to tell personally since I'd been staring at it for the past two hours or so. :lol: Though I do think I will go back and tone down the wall a bit; at least tweak it for better light distribution.

    edit: what's worse is technicalities are usually my downfall. I got critisized heavily in school for focusing too much in miniscule details which lead to loss of continuity or flow in the overall project. I had to learn that its the end result that matters most, and even multi million dollar movies have their flaws!

    edit2: so here's a perfect example about how crazy I will get with details.... I thought the shell casing looked kind of out of place (I tried some motion blur and tweaked it around) but I still couldnt put my finger on it until just now: the inside of the casing is black. Sitting on its own, this would be fine since its hollow. But at the angle its at, the inside should be lit up by the muzzle flash, even if it's just slightly. And the casing itself, despite being quite reflective, is oblivious to the flash as well..... *runs back to PS*

    Well,I don't know much about lighting and aperatures,but I know guns and shooting.LOL.Her finger is in a position that certainly could fire that pistol.And the look on her face is not so unnatural.The only thing I could say to add is that the gun would be moving up from recoil,and fire and or smoke would be coming out of the breech as well.I would try something with handcuffs......but that's just me.

    This is good to know! I only have random rental experience with real fire arms (and nothing in slomo or video breakdown outside of movies). Details like this really help add to the effect. :thumbup:
