So for today I planned something more complex. I had to do the HDR for the background at first existing out of three images (-2 0 +2).

You can see thorugh the little tunnel the Tonhalle. It is a hall in Düsseldorf where concerts are given. Carsten does our postproduction like cutting the movies, creating sounds – yeah he is also a musician – and doing special FX, so I thought this place might fit best.

After that I met Carsten at our office and I used the same location like yesterday, but this time the purple wall works like a green wall, so it was easy to cut Carsten out in Photoshop. The flares are natural, but I had to fix them, so they lay over Carsten.

By now this style of creating images makes really fun, even I spend up to 2-3 hours for Photoshop 🙂
