I had an idea from another shot I had seen and wanted to try it out. I'm working with an artist on a CD cover shot.

I'd be curious what you guys think of this...

Of course you have to envision a guy with a guitar instead of my helpful daughter.;)

I really like it personally. I would find a way to get rid of the porta potties though.

I saw them there but didn't feel like moving around to much......I'll find a better spot or clone them out in the "real" shot.

Thanks

I like the concept too, Kathy beat me too it with that word.

I also agree that a night time shot will look very different, and may be more interesting.

Yes we are going downtown about 8:00 to work on this. We are going to do some day and night shots so we can get the building lights.

It was not easy as this is actually 9 images in one!

Well it was not easy..

What I Wanted was to slow the shutter speed down during bright sun. It is easy to get blur at night. I put on a 3 stop ND Filter and a CPL in order to lower shutter speed and amount of light by 4 stops.

I then took a shot with normal exposure of my daughter, then I shot one with about a 8 second shutter of the train.

Then I took 7 shots 1 stop apart of just the building with nothing else in them.

I did HDR on the 7 shots..blended those to the way I liked them.

I then pulled the image of my daughter on and masked her off so only she showed up. I adjusted her so I had nice exposure in post.

I should ad...I used a triopod! There is no way to do this without a tripod and a shutter release cable.

The last thing to do was to bring in the blurred image, I used the "color match" tool in photoshop to get the blur to match the hdr image. Once I had the train on top I masked off the buildings and the ares I did not want to show leaving mostly the blurred area.

I then adjusted the opacity of the blurred train layer in order to get the amount of blur I wanted. The key is I wanted my daughter sharp, detail in the building behind the train, and lastly the motion of the train.

Quick how to....

I like it and it is very interesting visually. But I cant' tellif you put a color cast on it or the color is from the filters. It looks a little cyan and green...I would say about half a stop each.

I noticed that as well. I'm thinking it came about from the HDR merging, as I've seen sort of thing happen when I try it sometimes.

I really like the idea of the shot too, and would love to see the final result.
