Photo Manipulation - aka Photoshop Work

As Photoshop specialists, we do everything from simple clean-ups and complicated background replacements to digital make-up and stylised images, including complicated composites.

 

Most of the work we do is designed to look natural rather than obviously photoshopped but we are able to create fantasy or creative looks as well, if that is what your project requires.

 

We use only the latest releases of the Adobe Creative Cloud products which are fully backwards compatible with your image files.

In the gallery below you can see the before image and the after image. This gallery is only of vehicles but we can do any Photoshop and compositing work, regardless of the subject. Most of the before images are from car shows where you have limited space and angles, not to mention trying to find a gap in the crowd. Having fixed angles can make compositing more difficult to match the backgrounds but not impossible.

 

The transformations can take anything from 2 hours up to 6 or 7 hours depending on the complexity of the final composite. There is also a lot of time involved in travelling and photographing various backgrounds for different composites.

Do you want to see some of the magic as it happens? Check out this video as it shows you some of the steps that goes into creating one of my images. I always try to think about what will compliment the subject - be it a car, person, animal or something else - and then work to integrate the elements together so they look realistic and that they were shot in the same location at the same time.

A lot of time is spent locating the right images, angles and then the work on lighting to bring it all together but the final images make the effort worthwhile, and for a lot less than actually having to transport everything and everyone to the area.

We can also do fantastical works as well. Want a T-Rex to chase you in your wedding photos? We can totally do that. Want to look like you're riding a Dragon to work? We can do that too! Just talk to us about what you want.

If you would like a custom photo shoot or photoshop work done for you, then you can email us here and we can discuss your needs. I work in both the commercial and private sectors so we have a package that will work for you.

To see the before & after images click on the arrows on the image below. There are a few different examples, from the relatively simple to the more complex.

This is just a small sample of what we can produce. Email us about how we can help you.
