Im just trying some stuff out. I kinda like this one. What say you?
You need to do a neater trimming job. The edge of the cut is jaggy and distracting.
The point of that technique is to have the door transparent.
Not for it to look like someone cut a chunk out of the door with a hack saw.
feathering is a nice touch...
here is an example I have done on my own car... note, it's not of the highest level of quality (etc, etc, etc)... but...
that is awsome How did you go about doing that?
Right. You have the Idea...
Using a tripod...Take a picture with the door/hood open. Then take a separate picture with the door/hood closed. In photoshop, open both pictures on one work space, with the open hood/door on top.
Using a soft edged eraser, erase the top layer. Excluding the motor, seat...etc.
Thats how i do them.
This is a picture i did of my buddy jason on an Automotive forum TampaRacing.com
And one with a seat form the same shoot.
END/ thread jack.
I could not find a easy way to " feather " the edge. I was using paint.net for lack of having photoshop. I have to work on my mad skills! lol
jermz, Thats the kinda shot im trying to get lol. Nice work there.
Interesting technique. Might give it a go for my next car shoot.
a little off topic... but since you guys felt okay with the other pic... a little something I screwed around with
sorry Heck, not trying to steal your thread, if you want me to delete the link, let me know ;-) I'd like to see the Honda with this setup
Thats pretty good. I'm gonna give that a try one day.
Lmao. A big v8 in anything is always a good thing! Don't worry about it I don't mind Jermz.
Finally got a decent day to take some shots of my car to try out this technique
