PORTAL Teaser + VIDEO TRAILER by Benny-Lee PORTAL Teaser + VIDEO TRAILER by Benny-Lee
= A little about this shoot =
First off, this has gotta be one of my most stressful and tiring shoots; not because of the shooting process, but the planning and certain areas on the editing process (Most on the video editing www.facebook.com/photo.php?v=1… Long story short, this is one of my favorite series and I really want to do it justice. So I knew I had to get just the right location that's suitable for Portal 2, which ended up with me spending the 2 weeks before the shoot day finalizing, and bugging many of my friends who either owns a factory or has access to get us in. In the end, I had it down to three locations and two backup plans; this shot was shot with two strobes positioned above and aiming at her to simulate and enhance the lights coming down from above; due to the atmosphere of the game, I decided not to use any softboxes for a harsher lighting. (Granted, :iconxsoulxxxreaperx: did do a great job on makeup and costume) :)

= VIDEO TEASER! =
Other than this teaser, I've also put together a video teaser for everyone! You can find it on my fb page, or if you're lazy, here's the link: :D

= 3D modeling and special effects =
So you may have already noticed (or not) that Wheatley was actually added on to the photograph later. But I wouldn't even call it 'photoshop'; he's 3D modeled and rendered separately (from lighting to the way he's positioned accurately) So all I did was simply dropped him onto the photograph. I've been playing with many programs and practicing it at work (Thanks to the fact that I'm a designer and I get to use them on daily basis) Somehow I figured the work I was doing could very well applied to my photography as well so I took advantage of it (See VIDEO TRAILER above). This is just a beginning of it, I plan to do more of these special effects on my future photographs and videos (Only if it fits the theme, of course) :)

Can't appreciate this from a thumbnail or a small size image. Blew it up to the largest size and BAM! This is a very nice piece.

Wonderful shot! You're right, the factory and the harsher lighting was an excellent choice. Monika said that you added in Wheatley in Post? I never would of known! Looking forward to seeing more from this set :)
