Still playing with Poser. Shoulders and face seem to be the hardest to nail down in terms of realism.

It’s slow going, but I’m starting to get the hang of Poser. This still isn’t as “real” as I want, but I’m getting there.

Along with a few friends, I participate in an ongoing photo project called, “photo assignments”. Twice a month we pick a theme at random, and we have one week to produce an image. The images are due Sunday at 6:00pm.

This past week the theme was, “Shelter”. I actually forgot about it all week, and come Sunday afternoon I pretty much decided I wasn’t going to do this one, as I didn’t really have any ideas jumping out at me.

At about 4:30pm I took our dog, Maggie, out for a walk around the neighborhood. While we were walking I noticed this gate. Normally it’s closed, so seeing it open caught my eye – and immediately gave me an idea for an image. I snapped a photo with my iPhone, came home and fired up Photoshop and Poser, and about 45 minutes later had my image.

It’s a little rough, but given the time I’m very happy with how it came out. I’m actually particularly pleased with myself as I believe this is the first time I’ve turned day into night.

I’m still experimenting with Poser. I can’t quite get the shoulders right.

I’m creating my own models

For a long time now I’ve been interested in creating 3D images in the same style as what I might produce with a camera in the studio. I’ve owned a copy of Poser for a couple years, but never really made the time to use it, until now. This is my first attempt at creating one of these images.

Although it’s nothing special, I’m happy with how this came out. I’m looking forward to playing around with this some more. It’s not at all meant to be a replacement for photography. It’s just another creative outlet.
