Neda R. Bric – new Striptiz portrait
Neda R. Bric is a theater director in Mladinsko gledališče. In this picture she is portrayed on a bicycle – a requisite of the theater show about brothers Rusjan, Slovenian flight pioneers. Portrait commissioned by Mladina for Striptiz creative portrait rubric.
For this picture I’ve selectively illuminated her on the bicycle with a torch. I made something like 8 exposures, but on the end I’ve chose three. One that looked 90% perfect I used as a background. On that I add a second layer with a flashed face and expression and third layer was the exhaust pipe that was not so good on the background layer. I also changed color temperature of the exhaust into orange.
PS: I’ve just realized that layer of exhaust was set to normal blending mode, whereas it’s much better screen for upper part of exhaust and lighten for bottom part of exhaust. Here it’s the result and you compare. Small, but important difference. If I do a photoshop montage I want it perfect. flight
