One of my Sports Art options is what I call Cinevision. Cinevision is a movie poster of your athlete. Since I recently had a Star Wars photo session…one had to be made into a Cinevision! This is Boba Feet – Bounty Hunter. Enjoy!!

Wildcats Team Poster – Composite

Team Poster_Talke
This recent composite is one of my favs…it is my daughters softball team. It is our first season of softball. Def a fantastic sport for girls. We have a great team and coaches. While watching the games every weekend I had recent thought about a “Team Poster”. Once the background was complete…the fun part was to get the photo session complete in mid-season. This past Saturday I brought all my gear (I’ll post the list below) and set up a white backdrop clamped onto the backstop. I do not use green screen. It can cause a green hue for composites. I had an hour to photograph all the players as they warmed up before the game. We got it in and I processed for about 3 hours Sunday AM to complete the poster. Now its time to order some prints or vinyl banners!!! I really enjoy doing these posters….hopefully I will have a chance to photograph more teams in the future! Such a great keepsake!

Gear List:
Nikon D300
Nikon 70-200 f/2.8
Denny Mfg Freedom Cloth – White backdrop
2 – clamps (purchased at Home Depot)
Paul C Buff – Einstein 640W Strobe
Paul C Buff 36″ Octa
Paul C Buff Vanguard Mini Battery Pack
Manfrotto Stand

I used the Octa straight on to the subjects…I had the camera lower and slightly to the left. The Einstein are amazing lights…so much power! Beautiful even light! I am ready to give up on my hot shoe flashes!!

Football HDR Composite


If you shoot HDR’s and love to take portraits…why not try HDR Composites!! Above is my recent one…a football composite. I posted this shot yesterday in various places and on one site someone asked…is that real rain? It is just a rain texture, then blended in photoshop. I had a great session with Shad over the weekend…took about 37 shots and pre-shot the background a month or so ago. I looked at my backgrounds and shots and figured out what would fit best. I know I wanted to add rain to the shot and the end result is above.

Sorry to pimp my products (but I will have to occasionally). If you are looking for backgrounds, please visit two locations:
1) Denny Mfg.
2) www.talkephotography.com
Both have exclusive backgrounds and I hope you can find a couple HDR’s to create your own composite art!!
