Thread: How to do no shine?

    Default How to do no shine?

    Hi,

    Saw these pics. Have tried to create the same effect but no avail.

    Any gurus here know how to achieve it? The smooth surface eliminating the shine on highly reflective surfaces.

    Any help is greatly appreciated, thanks in advance.

    My guess would be to apply some blur to the surfaces that reflect, actually, by some, quite alot of blur.

    Looks like really diffused lights aimed at it from many directions

    read some where before. you go to blow the image up and then blur the reflections. quite alot of bluring. and then u got to sharpen the edges(this part i dont know how to) and kinda put back the details.

    and that image.. looks very 3D.

    It could be the paintjob is matt silver, not the usual metallic silver paint you see on most cars, plus diffused lightings.

    tis kinda should be done in 'studio' type of setting, big soft box with few kW on 1 side, and multiple strobes around. evidence by seeing the shadows...

    sometimes softbox not enuff... still must apply matt spray, put in gobos (big one)... another one is using photoshop, slowly do a vector on each over exposed panel, and do blending color match.
