Berlin Mystery

Sherlock and Watson, Berlin Mystery. Short photo story Every time I travel, I like to take background photos for my future composites. This time I was visiting Berlin for some commercial work. Fortunately I had some free time to walk all over the city and to take some photos for my self. When I was shooting these backgrounds, I didn’t have anything in mind. I was just taking photos of places that I like. Few mounts later, I got an idea to make short photo story of Sherlock Holmes. As usual, first thing I like to do when I’m doing compositing work is to find appropriate background for my heroes. I searched through my computer archive, and find out that Berlin background will do the job perfectly. Then I made some sketches and start to shoot models in studio. Below you can see the photos and the GIF files how those photos were made. Enjoy.   GIF files. How it’s done.
