Shoe photo with ribbons

Recommended Posts

Hi Damien, 

I need your help so bad! Last time I was here I sent you something just for a beer, well this time I am paying whatever you want :) 

I need to do a product photo like this: 

https://www.parallele.com/fr/souliers-plats/1966-boneo-deauvillekid-navy.html

How the hell do I shoot and retouch to get the ribbons floatin like this? How coudl I remove the "transparent" shoe inside while keeping the details from the inside? 

 

Thank you so much, if you wish to talk in private, feel free - I will pay anytime anything (well almost:))) you ask, I just want so badly to get this done well. 

Have a great day, 

best regards 

 

Iva

Hi Damien, 

 

thank you so much for having a look!

 

_MG_3263.thumb.jpg.8a6c68188256ed70b1ed9acf446a025a.jpgIts pretty similar...I just have no clue how to show the inside :/ 

I mean my photo is not similar to the finished one, just the ribbons :)

Its more visible on the third picture on the link I sent - you can clearly see the inside of two shoes close to each other. Im lost.

I was thinking taking the pic from behind with the "transparent shoe" inside, and flipping it and dodging - but it might be just to really get the inner part taken correctly, right? 

Thank you - I was on a wrong track!

It'll have to be done with wire.  I can't think of any other way.

It'll be really hard, though.  Making a wire foot shape will take a lot of patience.

Thanks a million though, I will try to figure it out. Sending a big beer! :)

yeah...I'm also with the wire idea...can you wire the ribbon, then put some fishing line to assist holding it up?  

the rest is just shot on white, so you shouldn't need to cut out?

would it have to be visible? what about poking it through the fabric, where it turns?  then you'd only have to clone the small hole

or even inside the pieces of ribbon, if it's doubled?

I would look into starching the ribbon into shape, it's old fashioned but may be your best option.

Hi everyone! I cant mess up with the shoe at all, it costs 200 dollars :) 

Trying the wire today, my man will go find me what I need at lunch time and I keep praying. Thank you and if you have any more thoughts or ideas, dont hesitate, Im so glad for any input :)

Hi Damien! Well who can say Damien Symonds himself was thinking about him?? :) I didnt figure it out unfortunately, I tried with the wires but it just didnt hold and I didnt indeed have the time and patience. I am still thinking about the solution though, I hope I will manage one day!
