We are back from the dead (no kiddin‘) to bring you this fun photography tutorial on how to create a scary Zombi portrait.
Most of you are probably so used to the Layers in photoshop that you take them for granted. Back in a day, a long long time ago, in the dark ages of analog photography (like 10 years ago) layers where used but they where actual analog layers. In today’s tutorial Robert demonstrated the use of such layer in a form of a glass in front of the subject. Other pre-photoshop layers involved the use of multiple exposure, overlapping the negatives, projections and other experimental techniques. Just like the photoshop layer, glass (a transparent layer) is used as a surface to apply special effects. In this example Robert used Vaseline which was smudged around to create stretchy blurry sort of fuzzy look.
