Default Contour drawing effect:


I want to shoot some nudes so that they look like contour drawings.
What kind of lighting and/or manipulation in PhotoShop would I use?

Thanks,

RA

One approach would be fairly hard lighting, and then posterize in
photoshop.

Use a slide projector(s) for illumination. Use a slide with stripes
of the sort that you would like to have fall accross the object.
Draw/print stripes on paper and photograph?

Photoshop: take the mouse and start drawing lines. If the lighting
is just right posterzing the image will give a sort-of topographical
map approach.

One simple approach might be to shoot through two layers of screen -
the overlapping grids form what's called a moire pattern (I'm too lazy to
punctuate that correctly) and may produce an effect close enough to what
you're after. Doctors use this very method to detect scoliosis, because
asymmetries in the spinal column will become visible within the pattern.

See http://www.rch.org.au/erc/photo/index.cfm?doc_id=141 for an
example.

Good luck!


- Al.

Well, Blind contour drawing is to practice hand eye movement which is very useful when drawing from observation. Contour drawing is used in order to practice on seeing and using negative space. Its meant to focus more on the negative “objects” than on the object being drawn.

Photography kit

Now you have some photography ideas in mind, and it is time to organize your tools for photography. Make sure you have kept your camera, tripod, lenses, memory card and portable drive. Do not miss out to take an assistant along with you to the wedding venue. Be it your friend or colleague, an assistant can help you arrange things at the venue and share your stress
