Who doesn’t know this? The costume fits, the pose is perfect, the facial expression is 100% and the lighting shines as if a team of 28 people was at work. Unfortunately, the photo is from the foyer of the con and 87% of all visitors are cavorting in the background.
It doesn’t have to stay that way. Mist free software, a few tricks and patience, the perfect background is inserted.
In the workshop I introduce GIMP, and demonstrate how you can achieve with simple means, decent results. Only a few tools are needed: Layers, eraser, scaling, maybe effects.
Check me out on Instagram (mslanna_cosplay) to get an idea of what the results can look like.
After a short introduction, we will work on the pictures you brought along and I will provide assistance and answer questions. No one will be finished in that time. Sorry.
