Using Photoshop To Turn A Wedding Reception In To A Police Chase
Featured last year for his “Wedding Day Zombie Apocalypse” composite, Photographer Josiah Moore is up to his old tricks again. This past fall he shot a wedding where both the Bride and Groom were car enthusiasts. He decided to make a fun chase scene out of a photo from the reception, and this video shows his process in Photoshop.
Josiah waited until the formal pictures were done, then took the couple outside and had the bride pretend to drive while the groom panicked on the hood. He told me a little bit about his setup, and here’s what he used:
“Canon 5D mkII, Canon 24-105 IS @ 35mm, f4, 1/50.
For flash I used 1 AlienBee 800, and aimed it straight up to bounce off the overhang. Made a nice fill. A happy accident was when a big bus pulled in behind us, it put a bit of a backlight that really helped make it pop! The whole thing took around 5 hours in PScs6.”
Below is the original image used, follow by the final.
