    im taking shots of my friend's 2002 Chevy Tahoe, and because it has big dubs and a sweet stereo system i was thinking some graffiti would be a good backdrop... anyone know where i can find a good mural wall of graffiti (legal, illegal, whatever) in or around orange county? preferably something colorful and artistic. let me know!

    You can also take some pictures of the vehicle with a high contrast background and PP the grafitti wall behind it. I am working on that myself and I am trying to get it to merge cleaner but heres my starting example:

    Before:

    After:

    I just need to find out how to make it look more natural. If anyone has any ideas or suggestions that may help, I'm all ears. :)

    Paul M: i find fading the edges out slightly makes it look more in touch which a background, also lower the brightness so its closer to the background shade.


    other than that i don't know

    dont PS it...it would be more effort to match lighting and reflections and tones than it would be to find some good graf and park in front of it.
