Merging CGI with traditional photography
Being a still life photographer, I had always tried my best to win my client’s trust and give them out the best of the photography which they have never expected. I have always presented with something new and fresh in my jewelry photography and this time I have arrived with my CGI jewelry photography service and combing the jewelry photography for this interesting golfer brooch design made by Mikus Diamonds.
I have put all my time and effort to document the whole process as a guide for you to give you a better understanding of the whole process.
The reason why I choose to compile it in a form of video is to let you know that how I develop and combine it into a final piece. This can turn out to be a lot helpful for all those people out there who are interested in try something similar.
I was asked to create a golf concept that would be suitable to the golfer brooch design. Hence that got me thinking how I can approach it. Well I somewhat photographed the whole golfer which was sent to me by one of my clients.
I later on add some of my CGI touch to it. I made sure that I choose the right elements in it. This can add up the idea and evoke the whole golf concept property.
Conceptual approach with CGI in mind
There was a reason why I conceptualized the golfer brooch idea! It’s because I want you to know about possibility of combining CGI with traditional photography.
I started with photographing golfer on white background first. This image has added the whole design of golfer with the art of reality approaches. I hang the golfer on the top of the translucent sheet. In this way it can clearly be visible in front in a prominent way!
Lastly, when I end up with the white background work, I carry out some revise work on retouching it well. This is all finish up to bring the effects of realism in it.
I was such a fun and explorative process, the way I conducted the whole golfer brooch. Well I loved the way it turned out with a 3D realism effect at the end of the day.
CGI jewelry photography simplified
I end up the whole golfer brooch jewelry with the designing of some spherical 3D golf balls in blender. This was what I was simply planning to include at the white background of the actual photograph.
The reason why I choose the golfer was basically to bring an idea about replacing the simple model with a photograph. Well I wanted to all in all share with you, how a simple photo can be transformed into the blend of photography and CGI. I did it with little effects and 3D design.
I hope that you like the way it came out. I have put all my effort into it and I am myself finding it so much interesting in the way it looks.
