Salut,

Ça fait un bail que je n'avais pas eu le temps de passer par ici mais aussi de ressortir mon APN... Ce matin c'était balade sur l'expo Concept Cars des Invalides.

Is that first one a Citroën?!... I know they make (or used to make) strange cars but that one look kind of over the top... The BMW reminds me of a WWII battleship...

Great shots anyway!

Yes, for the first it's a Citroën GT, the second is a TOURING MASERATI A8GCS BERLINETTA and the last a BMW GINA LIGHT VISIONARY MODEL.

Tks for your visit...

Are those drawings or real scale models?

They are full sized concept cars.

Pretty nice masking out of the cars. It might actually work quite nicely to just take a shot of a relatively evenly lit "infinite curve" (i.e. big piece of paper ) setup up close and composite it into the background rather than have the spot that was clearly not there.

Might look like you got it to yourself on a stage rather than an open pedestal.

The post processing and colours on that BMW photo make it look almost like a software render instead of a physical concept. Interesting effects.

Ho, excuse me but i'm very bad in english and i wrote (in French) my "method" for have this result with Photoshop CS3. If anyone can translate !!!
For the cars, it's not drawing Buddha. Look an original file bottom...

For the BMW, it's not the steel but a kind of skin.


Bonsoir et merci pour vos com's.
Le Fisheye permet d'obtenir une perspective très dynamique qui colle plutôt bien au sujet traité même si comme ici, et si mes souvenirs sont bons, il est utilisé principalement dans sa plage focale la plus grande à savoir 17mm au lieu des 10mm de base (A vérifier tout de même...).

Pour ce qui est du traitement, en fait il est très léger (c/f ci-dessous les originaux) L'essentiel du boulot se traduit par un détourage après recadrage pour éliminer les éléments parasites puis un remplissage, ensuite je joue sur la luminosité et le contraste de l'ensemble OU d'une partie du sujet en employant dans ce cas le lasso et un contour progressif adapté. J'accentue la netteté en passant par le procédé du mode LAB puis j'ai ici désaturé le rouge des podiums et pourquoi pas, saturé certaines des couleurs des véhicules. Enfin, pour le fun et histoire de donner un côté West Coast aux bagnoles, un p'tit coup d'aéro en deux temps (taille et opacité) sur les parties à faire briller et à mettre dans la lumière et c'est fini.

Wow, kalOO - these shots are stunning (as are their subjects). It's amazing how you converted car show images to look like studio shots.

Ah, just mentioning Citroën and Maserati in the same sentense makes me want to hunt down an old Citroën SM and buy it...
