There's dozens of tutorials and videos on how to create this effect so I thought maybe some at ATS are giving it a go too.
I'm getting a print of this doggy photo framed for a b'day pressie to his owner in November, but if someone can Draganise it for me to look even
better I might get that printed instead. I'm just looking for less background, (possibly darker) and an outstanding dog.
Hmm its not that hard to do, I agree with the others that the original pics are HDR, but I did my best to simulate it. Basically you increase the
sharpness of the image take out a lot of the natural shadow and then hand draw your own shadows / highlights, then darken the background.
Thanks for that. I've been learning quite a bit since I posted this thread and I have a nice little programme now called photomatix pro for making
hdr photos. (though I haven't made any breathtaking art yet)
My problem is I'm trying to learn too much at once. I started off from scratch wanting to do movie-making but then photography got in the way, so
I'm trying to learn both now. I'm getting there.
