Thread: How to do this?

    Default How to do this?

    Recently I saw in a mag of some catwalk pics. They removed all the models but only left with the costumes, so you see the costumes 'walking', floating in the air. even the portion being blocked by the models' body also appear in the pics clearly. how do they do this? any idea?

    prob using layer mask? The problem is the background also will be gone so unless you have a very clear uncluttered background, it will be no diff from cutting out from MAg!

    probably cloned the covered parts from existing material. Quite common technique used during post processing to touch up/remove unwanted stuff. Since you don't know what's covered.. so they just use some pattern that looks like the original bg/clothing can already.

    2 images, layers, eraser.
    or
    1 image, layers, clone / patch.


    Interesting idea...

    actually it can be done if you have it planned out properly.

    1) go earlier tot scene to set up a fixed height and take a shot of the empty catwalk

    2) during the catwalk, just shoot using the fixed height so that you can layer your 1st pic with the one with the models in it

    3) just use layers and masking tool to get back the bottom layer.

    Easier than to do cut and paste or to clone, only problem is lighting.
