Le Coq Sportif / Movistar Team
On this post I will try to explain how I did the final composition about the partnership between Le Coq Sportif and the Movistar Team, that you can see on Le Coq Sportif stores.
Everything started on a shooting in Madrid, where the official Team was presented in the Movistar HQ. On this video you can see me shooting them in the studio mounted on the hotel where they were staying.
As you can see, I was shooting them individually because the main reason of the shooting was to create individual shots of the athletes using the different products of Le Coq Sportif / Movistar collection.
Then it was necesary to do a composition with some of the athletes, and a party started on my computer between the CPU, the RAM and the Graphic card…
Image 1/ The first step was to create a simple white background with a grey ground (I also gave him a blue tone to fit with the brand collection).
Image 2-6/ I imported to the document, the five athletes.
Image 7-12/ Then I cropped the background of each one.
At this moment is when you can play more about the composition of them in the scene, when you have no backgrounds it’s easy to move them and see how everyone fits better on the picture.
Image 13/ To finish, knowing from where the main light is coming, I created some shadows (strong ones just below the shoe and soft ones on the ground) to make the scene a little bit more real.
After some hours of work in the computer and a 2Gb .psb file, it’s nice to see the final result printed in big on Le Coq Sportif store in Barcelona!
