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.

Neda R. Bric 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

  2. Hm, malo nekonstruktiven komentar sem dal ob začetnem navdušenju..
    Deluje mi kot konglomerat novega, modernega (zaradi barv in kovin) in starega, morda celo ruralnega (zaradi bicikla). Je pa to slikano na odru, ne?
    Ma, super je.

  3. thx Klemen!
    Ja, je na odru. Celo tisti del rdeči krog je del bicikla. Ko se začne vse vrteti vsak del povzroča določen zvok in zadeva je uglašana s strani nevemkaterega člana skupine The Stroj.

    Yes, it’s on stage and even that red circle in the back is part of the bicycle. When everything starts to turn every piece make sound and the machine is tuned in by a membr of The Stroj band.

  12. Very nice work!
    Only, in the description below the photo you write ‘brothers Rusjan, Slovenian fight pioneers’. I think that should be ‘flight pioneers’…
