There’s a Walk-Through For That 🙂

Having posted a ‘walk through’ this week of the Male Portrait edit [Link], it reminded me about another ‘High Speed’ editing video I’d recorded a while back after a day trip to Brighton for a Photo Walk [Link].

The video I’m pleased to say has proved to be quite popular, however quite a few of the comments left say that the video went too quickly to see what techniques were used.  Now I actually posted a written walk through of that edit too here on the blog so because some folks have missed it I’ve added a ‘Walk Through‘ section in Categories drop down menu…

Anyway here again is the high speed edit of the video ‘Grunge in 8 Simple Steps‘ and incase you missed it, underneath I’ve included a link to the ‘walk through’…

One More Thing
Here’s an edit of a photograph taken in the studio that I want to use in a composite; only problem is I’m now undecided about what kind of background to use…

Now I’ve thought of using an image of an underground car park or maybe a road leading off into the distance but I can’t quite make my mind up. I posted this edit up on Facebook and Twitter yesterday evening to see if anyone else had some ideas and so I thought that I’d do the same here incase some of you weren’t into the whole Social Media thing or maybe just missed the post.

So, what do you think could work? Once I’ve finished the composite I’ll post a walk through of the whole process from the studio shoot and all the editing involved but I just need to come up with the right background so it would be a great help if you could post any thoughts in the comment section below.

Right, that’s all for now so have a great weekend and I’ll see you back here next week,
Enjoy 🙂

    HI Glyn,

    I can see that a lot of work went into getting all those screen grabs, adding text etc.,and it has paid off. This is a well presented walk-through- clear and detailed. Thanks.

    As for the background for the bike shot my suggestion is a grungy urban setting something like an old industrial estate, lots of brick walls, a solo lamp post, old posters on the wall. Cold even be a dockyard setting. Either would possibly suit the grunge effect that you sometimes use.

    Or completely alternative, a countryside setting such as by a field of yellow rape with billowing white clouds. As the initial shot has a clean look, a modern bike, white T-shirt on the model etc, perhaps this could work too.

      @DaveT…Cheers for the feedback re the walk through mate; much appreciated.
      Re the bike shot, I agree in that it definitely needs to be something with the ‘grunge’ feel as you suggest.

      Regards,
      Glyn

    Hiya Glyn great post as always mate.

    The image of the dude on the bike would look cool in a million and one setting I’m sure.

    I’d like to see it used say with a traffic jam behind or some one driving not paying attention. To show that when your behind the wheel of a car you must pay attention 101% and watch out for bikers as so many lose their lives each year to bad car driving.

    Keep up the awesomeness mate

    Terrifically helpful post – many thanks. The background should be an abandoned airfield -cracked tarmac, grungy hangars… or an old racetrack – Le Mans

    I think the bike image would look good using the end of a runway and a jet flying low over head having just lifted off. Make it so only part of the jet is seen to give the appearance that it is flying right over the guy.

    What if the bike image was set against an old world urban street scene, old narrow streets, cobble stoned cart roads. Just to give a contrast between the old city vs the new modern bike?

      @Mike…Yep, liking the sound of that. Gonna get out and take some background shots to see what works best.
      Thanks for dropping by,
