Reverse-Engineering The Work of a Master: Creating A Portrait In The Style Of Dan Winters
Phlearn.com just released this behind-the-scenes video which shows how to light, shoot, and process a shot in the style of Dan Winters. By reverse-engineering the light and color that Winters uses (and using a little Photoshop magic), you’ll be able to replicate one of his most well-known shots of actor Tom Hanks. I don’t know about everyone else, but whenever I look through a magazine, I guess at the lighting setups and processing choices of nearly every photo I see. If you’re like me, you’ll probably learn a thing or two by watching this video, and maybe be inspired to reverse-engineer a favorite shot of your own.
