Howdy to you all. This time I’m going to write a semi-tutorial type of post about how I created the portrait of the professional Finnish athlete Noora Toivo (she has a Finnish blog site Noora Toivo 400m aitajuoksija). Once again I have to say I really don’t fancy tutorials that give you lighting set-ups up front because I feel you won’t learn much from copying a light setup. Instead, I’m going to give you some tips and pointers on how to make a composite believable. The image will be used for promotional material, but it was a perfect opportunity for me to practice my retouching skills.
There’s also a short section for techies at the very end where I’ll talk about light trails and flash durations 🙂
