Re: OT question and Hello
Welcome to the list!|
Could you point us to a web site with examples similar to what you'd
like to achieve, just so we are on the same page image-wise? Thanks.
It's not clear if you want to get this anamorphic look in-camera or if
you're willing to play in Photoshop a bit. Hunt Witherill has done some
stunning floral work in which he has "bent" the image structure using
the Polar Coordinates filter (Filter>Distort>Polar Coordinates).
You can see some examples at the following:
If you are using CS2, there are also some new warping tools found in
the Edit>Transform>Warp menu. Lots of fun and a great opportunity
to waste time. ;^)
Hope this helps,

would like to make some images of my partner going about his work, so
will use MF, and would like to achieve for some of them an 'anamorphic'
look that I have seen elsewhere. It is not just that the image is out
of focus, but that it takes on a strange shape. I nearly achieves this
in one image where he was walking away and was in the background of a
shot. Is this the way it is done, can anyone tell me? I would like to
have a fairly extreme example of this - a suggested shape in the
landscape to counter balance the more prosaic shots I already have - I
would be so grateful for any advice.
