New Striptiz portrait Jean-Christophe Couet
This is a new version of the picture, after Gregor Kervina on Facebook left a comment that it might look better if I woyld use radial blur and it is much better! THX!
Next Striptiz portrait for Mladina weekly is Jean-Christophe Couet , a photographer who just had a show in Galerija Vžigalica, produced by MoTA. I guess every reader of my blog knows JC. The keywords for this picture are camouflage and suicide. The portrait surely isn’t reflecting his work, but since we’ve been studying together I knew he would not mind if I make the picture my way. So, camouflage and suicide.
I finally used my new super-wide zoom 14-24mm and just detached flash. in post production I added flash from the camera, lights on the train and motion blur effect. For motion blur effect I made a new layer and set opacity 85%, so you still see shape of the train and the motion effect looks much better. Here are some images of a torch and a camera flash and before / after effect. On the bottom there are few images from the opening of the show.
