Mike Harrington And PhotoKey 6 Pro - FXHOME recently worked with photographer Mike Harrington to create images using PhotoKey 6 Pro.
These days, photographers are used to the idea of digitally enhancing their images, and utilising a range of software to create amazing pictures. However, we all know how much time it can take to work round every pixel as we try and separate out elements of a shot for retouching or compositing, which is where green screen can be a huge help.
Recently FXHOME worked with photographer Mike Harrington to create two striking composited images using PhotoKey 6 Pro. Mike came up with two contrasting concepts for images that could only be created through the use of green screen techniques. For the first shot, Mike wanted to create an urban parkour image, capturing a dynamic flip with an ultra-sharp finish. Working with PhotoKey allowed him to shoot a separate background, then capture parkour moves under flash in the studio. Clever use of lighting meant that the urban atmosphere was brought into the studio, and the software was used on set to check the key and then bring the shot together.
The second image was designed to be more fun, taking a model to the tropical jungle – something that can be hard to do in the UK! PhotoKey 6 Pro was used as a plugin in Adobe Photoshop to create Mike’s second image as he required layers to be composited on top of one another. By switching between interfaces effortlessly and applying PhotoKey 6 Pro's keying technology to any layer in an Adobe Photoshop project, Mike was able to achieve everything he wanted without interrupting his streamlined workflow.
Designed for professional green screen photographers, PhotoKey 6 Pro delivers advanced green screen removal and background replacement features with full batch processing capabilities. PhotoKey 6 Pro fits seamlessly into your workflow, either as a standalone program or as a plug-in for Adobe Photoshop, giving you full creative control over your images.
