Went on a street photography session in Brighton to see what images that I could take to invoke my emotions. After having the fun day out, I came to Photoshop to bring what was in my head to life! As a result, I give you ‘People Pieces’.
Here is a quick breakdown on how these were achieved:
Initial Colour Pass and Crop
Subject isolation: the clone stamp tool was used to remove the subject’s friend and the subject were isolated away from their shoes.
Subject splicing: cutting the subject into separate pieces on each of their own layers. The background behind them was made using the clone stamp tool.
Depth Painting: the brush tool was used to paint the “other side” of the subject to build depth. These paint layers then had a noise and blur filter applied to them to match the in camera noise.
Final Colour Pass: Curves and Hue and Saturation effects were used on particular hue selections to give the dress a pinker feel and make the skin less yellow (which had been reflected by the stones).
