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?’
Update. I have a few volunteers for the zombie treatment this year. In the meantime, here is an update to the previous image;
