Models and Logos

posted on 21st of march, 2008

If you read this blog regularly (and really, does anyone?), you might remember my happy story about working up the nerve to ask a rock climber I encountered if he would sign a model release. We were in Joshua Tree at a beautiful time of day, just about an hour before sunset. He agreed, very willingly, and so I put the images in my submission folder.

Well, I am very happy to say that the files have been accepted. I am as pleased as ever with this guy's willingness to be a model. I think the rocks, the time of day, and his climbing technique all came together.

Here's the cautionary part of this story, though: I was so focused on getting the model release that I forgot about the many logos he was wearing! From his hat, which mentioned a certain baseball team, to his shirt, to his climbing gear, to his shows, logos everywhere! I got dinged, and rightly so, for not noticing these things.

A little (well, a lot) of time with PhotoShop, and he emerged logo-free.

I hope you like the photos.

And thanks again you, Mr. C. You're a trouper!

Bugsy, PS can do wonders on those logos. My toughest project to date was removing the name from a fireboat. Cloning to the rescue, followed by lots of brushing to smooth things out. I have to say I love my Wacom tablet :)
