Whilst 99% of my job involves making my subjects look better, I sometimes have the opportunity to have a little fun with Photoshop and embrace the gruesome.  Last weekend, Pixel By Pixel sponsored a disc golf tournament at Bald Hill Park in Clarinda, VIC.  There was a Halloween theme for the event so I though I would have a little fun creating my sponsor tee sign and create a zombie disc golfer.  Thankfully, I had a willing participant for my model.  It’s not easy asking someone if they would mind having their photo manipulated to make them  look like a zombie. 🙂

This photo manipulation involved some simple compositing, colour correction (or should I say “invention”), some painting of blood and scars and a lot of dodging and burning to create the desired effect.

It was a fun challenge.  So… any takers?  Who would like to be ‘zombified?’
