  • Size Matters: How to Build a (huge) Panoramic Photograph | Chase Jarvis Blog
    level and to pull the corners out to fill the frame While we re on the subject of warping I prefer using the Warp tool over the Liquify tool for larger tweaks of pixels When used for little tweaks Liquify is great but when used for larger movements over larger areas the stretching and smearing of the pixels can be quite apparent First I draw a selection with the marquis tool that is significantly larger than the area that I ll be transforming I then hit Command J Layer New Layer via copy so that I can work on the area without affecting the main layer To bring up the Warp tool hit Command T Edit Free Transform Once the Free Transform handles are visible use either Control Click or Right Click to bring up the contextual menu where Warp is found You can manipulate any of the points and or handles or click drag directly on the areas in the middle of selected pixels The trick though is to only manipulate the middle areas This leaves the edges unaffected so they remain seamless with the surrounding areas Once you re satisfied with the Warp hit Return Enter or doubleclick on the selected area to accept If the manipulation is significant you may have a seam appear at the edges Simply add a layer mask to the Warped layer and subtly mask the little area out and you should have seamless image again If PTGui can t get a clean seam for some reason you can help it along by giving it more information to work with You are able to access PTGui created paired control points between frames that identify shared features between frames Sometimes the paired points PTGui automatically creates are lined up correctly You can go in and manually move the points to make sure they are over the same spot in each frame You can also add your own control points to help PTGui identify where the frames align The more points the better Control points Another powerful feature of PTGui is you are able to force the software to include or exclude portions of specific frames Along the left third side of the panorama PTGui was not creating a good seam of the ridge in the background I played a bit with forcing PTGui to only use portions of the 2 frame It helped it create a cleaner seam along the ridge In the screenshot the green is where I painted and PTGui was forced to use that area of frame 2 to create the final panorama As good as software is these days they can t do everything perfectly No matter how I cajoled PTGui there were some areas of the panorama it couldn t pull off seamlessly In a few spots the ground gave PTGui trouble If the final destination of these panoramas was just the web these slightly soft seams would probably have been unnoticeable But at nearly four feet tall they would be obvious In these cases I needed to process individual frames from the original RAW files of the ground to bring into the panorama Since any panorama software distorts individual frames to create the final panorama these portions I brought in needed to also be distorted to fit into the panorama I m guessing one of the least used layer blend modes in Photoshop is Difference How it works is quite simple and can be useful in the right situations This is one of those situations When a layer is set to Difference and the pixels below that layer are exactly the same it displays them as solid black If they display as any other color they are different This often works great for aligning layers You can see in the screenshot below several spots that are black Once the patch layer is as close as possible it then took some delicate masking to fit the patch in nicely I find it works best to paint the mask to an edge already in the image like one of the rocks The natural edge is a good way to hide any edge created from the mask Ground before Ground after A small touch that I find very useful when scaling images well beyond their native resolution is adding some simulated grain It is also useful for panoramas because in the stitching process pixels get stretched and squeezed and the natural noise pattern or texture of the camera s sensor is warped So the simulated grain can cover up some of the pixelation from scaling the image up and create a uniform texture over the whole image Even if the grains need to be large to cover up the roughest parts of the image it most often looks better than the distorted and abused pixels underneath Adding noise or grain can also help if you are having any banding issues in areas with gradients The grain process is simple Create a new layer with the blend mode set to Overlay or Softlight Fill it with 50 gray the neutral color for these blend modes Add noise Gaussian Monochromatic Adjust levels by bringing up the black point and bringing down the white point This adds contrast and makes the noise a little more clumpy or grain like And last it needs just a touch of the Gaussian Blur Filter When the Grain layer is set Overlay the grain will be more apparent Setting it to Soft Light makes the grain a little less apparent Please note these settings were specific for this size image Adjust to suit a particular image s needs One last note on adding grain add it after you ve scaled an image up to its final print size If you add it before the grain gets scaled with everything else and will huge and scary and ugly The other bits of retouching I needed to do were less specific to building a panorama I had to remove all

  • Deconstruct This Photo 5.0 - Chase Jarvis Photographs Prince Manvendra | Chase Jarvis Blog
    30 seconds to figure all this out so I wasn t splitting hairs Lighting Set Setup Broncolor Scoro 1 Broncolor Ring Flash 1 Bron Pulso head with a dish Why With only a ringflash and a para dish I had no soft light options But I actually liked the look I was getting it all went pretty well with my theme Since the room was basically pitch black and I had just a minute or two I knew one important thing Keep it simple With that in mind I knew two other things too one light was going on the Prince the other was going to light the speakers Those were my two features I chose the softer of the two options the ringflash would be best for the Prince but I didn t want that ringflash look so I backed pretty far off my subject 3 4 camera left gave me a catch light in the eyes reasonable light on the subject and a little of the light bleeding onto the speakers at frame left I then took the para dish and fired it from frame right at the speakers This helped separate the subject off the background a bit would have loved a softbox to have given me light on the speakers and a rim light on The Prince s right side but that ship had sailed A couple chimping shots tweaking lights up and down for balance and had to make that move I discussed above from F11 to F8 but then I was off to the races I m at about 4 minutes here Which left one minute for the actual image Twenty frames later Done Post Production Treatment Initial work was done in Aperture then kicked to Photoshop Why Mostly curves and some white balance in Aperture got the image a notch above neutral Could have gone further in Aperture but knew we had to go to Photoshop you ll know why in a second so did more work over there Then into Photoshop for color some contrast and punch and a good bit of custom vignetting on the floor and corners to hone the light a little making up for what I could not achieve in camera given my constraints That s all folks 5 minutes from hitting the room to a captured frame including plugging in the lights and moving furniture Would have loved to have gone wild with 30 minutes for this shot and all the right tools and made a more perfect image but we do what we can with what we ve got I like what the image says and how it says it Ultimately that s our job Shoutouts go to Natta Robert JuanCarlos H ChrisCWPhoto Sameer Jamie Gordon Seagram Steven and Wesley but I think JuanCarlos H and Natta probably did the best overall descriptions Send an email to norton chasejarvis and we ll send you a signed book or something fun Here s the image one more

  • How Personal Creative Work Leads to Commissioned Jobs | Chase Jarvis Blog
    for years I always like to start the meeting with new personal work This way these new images become a conversation piece since there are usually some interesting stories behind how the images came to be I got a flat tire in Ethiopia and was stranded for days can be an interesting conversation Passion doesn t lie When other photographer s show me their work and I can hear an undeniable sense of excitement in their voice it gets me interested in what they have to say Instead of pretending to be excited about work that s several years old it s much better just to go out and create something new that keeps your blood pumping Sharing personal work is one simple way of showing passion The last person someone wants to hire is someone who doesn t care about what they do and only creates when they re on a job There is a way better vibe and it is easier to be productive around motivated people 3 Personal Work Gets You Hired To Shoot What You Like to Shoot The above portrait I took of Robert De Niro was for Screen Actor s Guild which has light reminiscent of my personal portraits When you photograph a subject or in a certain style that interest you it s usually the same style you end up getting hired to shoot An art director has a lot of confidence in hiring a photographer who has already shot something that vaguely matches their vision for the project Personally a lot of the times I am hired because of what s already in my portfolio I often hear something like we used this photo of yours as a reference and we d love if you could create something similar for our photoshoot This doesn t mean you should do the exact same thing you ve already done it just means that you re being hired for what you re most passionate about Now it s time to apply those skills for other purposes I ve developed a lot of skills I wouldn t have if it hadn t been for keeping myself busy For example I ve found that working with foreign subjects who aren t used to photography has really boosted my communication skills in every aspect of my life Another example is that I use a lot of the same lighting styles first developed in a safe controlled studio setting when shooting in the field Another key thing I d like to mention here is spreading your photographs by using the power of the internet With todays technology there s no excuse for your work not be seen With social media blogs and photography contests such as PDN if you do good work someone is going to see it and share it This doesn t mean that these tools do the work for you but it does give you a platform that spreads your work instantly The more eyeballs on
