Sin City Inspired Photoshoot (Behind the Scenes)

The City: Photography Tutorial

In this Photography tutorial we focus on three key elements necessary to produce this image. You will learn about lighting, styling and props and shooting for a composite.

Lighting

In terms of creating the “Sin City Style” lighting is the most important element. The look developed for the film was adapted from the original comic series and involves high contrast black and white images with harsh lighting. For the film they achieved this look through the use of “rim lighting”. Rim lighting basically means placing lights behind your subject pointed towards the subject. This lighting creates a glow or “rim” of light around the subject, separating them from the background.

In this video we explain how we set up our rim lighting to achieve the “Sin City Style”.

Understanding the Color Managed Workflow

The task of printing has always been part art and part science. Let Jeff Lazell walk you throughout the ins and outs of printing in the color managed world. Jeff was the post-production manager at New York City’s premiere wedding and event photography studio and an expert on color management with almost a decade in the field.

This presentation gives you a chance to ask all the questions you’ve ever had about getting the best prints possible. Jeff will talk about using a reference target for shooting, one of the many monitor calibration units to make sure that what you see is what you get on your monitor, and then the profiling device to create a custom ICC profile for their printer, paper, ink combination. Also, all the tips and tricks in Photoshop and Lightroom that will get you to where you need to be before you waste any paper, any ink, and most importantly any time.

First Person Hyperlapse Videos

We present a method for converting first-person videos, for example, captured with a helmet camera during activities such as rock climbing or bicycling, into hyper-lapse videos, i.e., time-lapse videos with a smoothly moving camera. 

At high speed-up rates, simple frame sub-sampling coupled with existing video stabilization methods does not work, because the erratic camera shake present in first-person videos is amplified by the speed-up.

How to Create a Sunset in Photoshop

Shooting later in the day gives you the opportunity to add a warm “sunset style” to your image in Photoshop. In today’s episode we show you how to color your image to give it that warm “sunset” feel.

Choosing the Correct Photo

In order to make this effect appear real it is important to choose a photo that has the correct lighting. The first thing to look for is the placement of the sun. You will want to use an image that was shot later in the day, when the colors in the sky warm up a bit. Next it is important that the light source is visible in the image. A backlit image will work best, but you can also use images that are side-lit.

Coloring the Image

To create the sunset effect we are using a combination of Levels and the Gradient Tool. First we have to make the image look like it was taken later in the day, and that means making the detail darker. Then we add color into the shadows using the Red Channel and the Black Point on the Output Slider.

After adding red to the shadows we warm up the highlights and use a Gradient Tool to center the effect over the light source.

How to Add Movement to Your Photo

To finish this photo we add a bit of motion, making it look like the camera was moving with out subject. For this specific type of motion we need to use a Radial Blur because the movement stems from the center of the image. If the movement came from the camera “panning”, we would use a Motion Blur.

In the Radial Blur settings be sure to change the default from “Spin” to “Zoom”. Then choose the correct amount and the Blur Center. This dialog does not provide a preview, so you may need to test a few different settings before getting it perfect.

After the Radial Blur has been applied we use a layer mask to hide the blur from the center of the image and over the subject.
