How to create a film artwork design using photo pos pro

As artists, we spend a ton of time perfecting our craft.

And then, after hours of working on a painting, exhausted and up against a deadline, we often neglect the most important part of the process: photographing the work. Too many of us are a little lost when it comes to the specifics and settle for a few sloppy shots before shipping the artwork out.

Since artists are required to submit work digitally for exhibitions, grants, talks and your public profile page, good photography offers the first impression of your art and your professionalism.

We frequently see artists with incredible artwork, but have images that are shot in dimly lit, sloppy environments that distort the original artwork.

Knowing how to properly photograph your work can mean the difference between being accepted to a show, or winning the favors of an important client or gallery director.

We put together a few guidelines to photographing your artwork so you can begin to photograph your artwork like a pro.

1. Hang your artwork on the wall

We regularly see artwork photographed leaned up against a wall and shot from a downward angle. Find a neutral colored wall (white, black, gray) and hang your work at a height where the middle of your piece will be parallel to where your camera will be —either on a tripod or resting sturdily on a table or other surface.

2. Light your work properly

If you are shooting your work indoors, do so in a room with plenty of windows and natural light. Some artists also enjoy photographing their work outdoors when it is cloudy or overcast, as indirect sunlight provides the best lighting. Natural light can be a beautiful way to photograph your work as long as it is indirect.

If the weather isn’t cooperating, or if you are up against a late-night deadline, you will need to set up a lighting kit. The good news is, you don’t have to spend a ton for a professional setting if you aren’t ready to invest in one.

All you will need is two lights at a minimum for 2-dimensional work. We have used lighting stands that you often see in dorm rooms (the ones with three adjustable bulbs) or clamp lights. Place the lights halfway between the camera and the canvas at a 45-degree angle pointing toward the wall (this will help eliminate shadows and “hot spots” on the painting). If you have umbrellas for your lights, attach them now.

Arthur Brouthers shows how he uses white panels to reflect light and a finished piece “Slipping II” on his Instagram.

LIGHT HACK: If you don’t have professional grade lighting kit, you can easily hack diffusing the light with a white sheet or white plastic between the lights and your work. This helps to evenly distribute the light. Alternatively, a few sheets of white foam core can be set up to simulate a “raking light” effect where the lights are pointed at the foam core and the whiteboard reflects the light back at the piece.

3. Adjust your camera and settings

Once your artwork is secured to the wall, double check that the camera is set to the lens lines up with the middle of the painting. You want to position your camera so that the frame is filled with most of the painting, with a bit of background that you can crop out later. It is important for many juries to see the edges of the paintings to get a sense of scale.

The ISO and aperture of your camera are very important to get clear, crisp and bright images of your artwork. ISO references what film speed used to measure. The higher the number, the more sensitive the film was to light and the coarser the image. In this case, since we want very crisp images, we want a low ISO. Studio shots will generally be shot at ISO 100.

The f-stop of the aperture of your camera adjusts how much light is let through the lens by making the opening bigger or smaller. The higher the number, the less light is being passed through. With a DSLR the ideal range for shooting artworks is between f-8 and f-11.

TIP: Set your camera’s timer to four or five seconds so that pressing the shutter button doesn’t create a shake in your image.

4. Edit your photos to perfection

There are plenty of free or inexpensive photo editing software alternatives out there that will help minimize any inconsistencies. While Photoshop still reigns king, Photoshop Elements or Gimp allow basic functions such as color correction, cropping, and other minor adjustments. Lightroom also offers a subscription-based editing program that professional photographers swear by.

There are, of course, many additional nuances and tricks that could be added to this initial guide. However, if you are looking to improve your photographs and represent yourself professionally on your public profile page, this is a great starting place.

How To Print a Quality Transparency

How to create a film artwork design using photo pos pro

When you have picked a design (or created one) you will need to convert it to black & white if it is not already. Follow this guide if you need help converting color, gray-scale or drawings into pure black screen printing ready artwork.

Black and white photographs will not work as your design. No gray scale or color. Halftones will work as long as the dots are not too small.

How to create a film artwork design using photo pos pro

Using photo software, edit the image (Paint Shop Pro used in this tutorial). Click the ink blot icon and place the cursor over the black part of the design. R, G, and B should all be 0.

How to create a film artwork design using photo pos pro

Then place your cursor over a white area, and the R, G, and B should all be 255. This image is now ready to be printed.

An actual black and white photograph will NOT work as your design.

Insert your image onto a Word Doc and resize it according to how large or small you want the design to be. This image is stretched to fit an 8.5″x11″ with a minimum of .5 inch border around all 4 sides. Make sure you’re working with an image large enough to stretch this big before it gets pixelated. If you can see pixelation then it will appear on your stencil as well.

Transparency film will have a smooth glossy side, and a rough/textured side. Make sure when you load the transparency into your printer, it will be printed on the rough side. The smooth side of the transparency will prevent the printer ink from drying and will smear. Tip: If it’s hard to tell which side of the transparency is the printable side, lightly dab a corner of the transparency with moisture. The printable coated side will feel tacky.

Remove any printer paper if necessary.

How to create a film artwork design using photo pos pro

Always make sure to set your printer setting on “Best” or “Highest DPI.” This Brother printer settings is under Resolution, and it was set to HQ 1200. Most times, you can print the transparency under regular paper, but in some cases you will need to select “Specialty Paper” or some printers have a “Transparency” setting.

How to create a film artwork design using photo pos pro

Once the transparency has been printed, allow it to dry for several minutes. Now it’s ready to use!

Video Content Specialist Expert Interview. 27 June 2019.

  • Think about the movies you like to watch, or the books you like to read and consider what makes them so interesting. Is it the characters, the action, the visuals, or the theme? Whatever it is, keep that element in mind as you plan your movie.
  • Write out a list of all the props, locations, and actors which are currently available locally then develop a film around this. Keep a dream journal, dreams like films are visual stories and dreams. Keep a notebook with you for writing ideas down. Read the news stories in the papers. Have a basic idea, and work with that. Narrow it down as you go along while writing the plot.

Video Content Specialist Expert Interview. 27 June 2019. A storyboard is a comic-book-like version of the film that you’ll create but without the dialog bubbles. It can be done on a large scale, drawing only each major scene or transition, or, if you’ve got a very visual story, It can also be done at the micro-level, planning every shot and camera angle.

  • This process makes a long film go more smoothly, and will help you anticipate difficult scenes or sequences to film. You can try shooting without storyboarding, but it will not only help you visualize your movie, but it will also help you explain your vision to the other members of the crew.

How to create a film artwork design using photo pos pro

Using Photoshop you can create some pretty incredible photo effects. From natural pastels and soft edits to dark/moody edits , there are a lot of options depending on your style.

In this tutorial, you’ll learn how to create a retro grainy film effect in Photoshop. Retro effects are popular in a variety of advertisements, social media posts , and more.

Follow along with this simple tutorial to add vintage effects to your photos. You can find more advanced film effects for Photoshop here .

How to create a film artwork design using photo pos pro

1. Add Noise/Grain

The first step of this tutorial is to add noise and grain to your image. Start by duplicating your background layer. You can rename it something like ‘Noise Effect’ so you remember.

Then once you have a duplicate layer, navigate to the top of your screen and click Filter > Noise > Add Noise

How to create a film artwork design using photo pos pro

After clicking ‘Add Noise . . .’ you will see a box that looks like this. You can decide how intense you want the noise to look. For this tutorial I am going with Amount: 4 and a gaussian distribution. You can also choose between monochromatic (black and white) noise or colored (RGB) noise.

How to create a film artwork design using photo pos pro

2. Curves Adjustment

The next aspect of the grainy film effect is to adjust the Curves of your photo. Click the half filled circle icon at the bottom of your layers panel and select ‘Curves’ to add the adjustment layer.

How to create a film artwork design using photo pos pro

Once added, try to replicate the curve seen below. You basically want to create a smooth S curve with 4 points.

The top most right point should be brought down slightly (or more if you prefer). This brings the whites to grey and fades the highlights in your photo. The next point to the left should be brought up just a bit to emphasize the highlights.

The bottom most left point should be brought up slightly (or more if you prefer). This brings the blacks to grey and fades the shadows in your image. The next point to the right should be brought down a bit to emphasize the shadows.

How to create a film artwork design using photo pos pro

3. Add a Photo Filter

Now that the noise and curves are complete, you can add another adjustment layer to your layers. This time a ‘Photo Filter’ effect.

How to create a film artwork design using photo pos pro

Click the Filter drop-down and select Magenta, then reduce the density to 9%. You can increase the density for a more intense pink effect, but it looks best between 7-14%.

How to create a film artwork design using photo pos pro

4. Add a Gradient Map

The next step is to add a Gradient Map adjustment layer to your image.

How to create a film artwork design using photo pos pro

Once you’ve added the adjustment layer click the gradient shown with the drop-down box in ‘Properties’. It will bring up another pop-up that looks like this.

How to create a film artwork design using photo pos pro

Select the gradient preset with purple, green, and orange. This is the top right most preset in the screenshot above.

Once selected, click ‘OK’ and then you’ll return to your Photoshop document. Double click the ‘Gradient Map 1’ layer and change the Blend Mode to Screen. Then adjust the opacity to around 24% to apply the effect. You can make it higher or lower depending on your preferences, but this gradient map effect looks best at between 20%-40%.

You can adjust the colors in your gradient map to emulate different film types with this effect depending on if you want a warm or cool look.

How to create a film artwork design using photo pos pro

5. Adjust Vibrance Settings

The last step, which is totally optional, is to add a ‘Vibrance’ adjustment layer.

Based on your preferences you can reduce or increase the vibrance/saturation. I personally enjoy reducing the saturation to add the vintage analog look while bumping up the vibrance to retain the sharpness of the colors.

This completes the retro grainy film effect tutorial for Photoshop. You can view a before/after graphic of the effect below.

It’s not difficult to turn a photograph into a seemingly hand-drawn cartoon, and with this technique you can modify the appearance as you go along.

How to create a film artwork design using photo pos pro

To create this effect we’re going to use a photograph of the late, great cartoonist Stan Lee, courtesy of Gage Skidmore on Wikimedia Commons, which you can download here.

Step 1: The starting image

You can use just about any photograph for this technique, as long it’s clear and well-defined. This shot of Stan Lee fits the bill perfectly.

How to create a film artwork design using photo pos pro

Step 2: Cut out the photograph

If you have Photoshop CC, the Select > Subject command will do a good job of automating this process. If you have an earlier version, then start with the Quick Selection Tool and modify the cutout using Select and Mask/Refine Edge (depending on your version of Photoshop). Use Command/Ctrl J to make a new layer from the selection, and add a white background behind it on a separate layer.

How to create a film artwork design using photo pos pro

Step 3: The wrong way

To turn the image to pure black and white, the Threshold filter (Layer > Adjustments > Threshold) would seem to be the best option. But as you can see here, this often produces a very rough, bitty result.

How to create a film artwork design using photo pos pro

Step 4: Soften the image

Instead of going straight for Threshold, first use Filter > Noise > Median to soften the portrait. I used a radius of 4 pixels. Unlike Gaussian Blur, this softens while keeping crisp edges.

How to create a film artwork design using photo pos pro

Step 5: Add a Threshold Adjustment Layer

Use Layer > New Adjustment Layer > Threshold to add the Threshold Adjustment. Now that the Median filter has been applied, the effect is much smoother. take all the color out of the cutout layer using Image > Adjustments > Desaturate.

How to create a film artwork design using photo pos pro

Step 6: Dodge and Burn

Because we’re looking through the Threshold adjustment to the layer beneath, we can modify the base layer while seeing the final effect. Use the Burn Tool set to Highlights to darken around the edges of the shirt, to give it definition; hold Alt/Option to get the Dodge Tool temporarily, and use it to brighten the over-dark areas such as inside the glasses. Take your time over this step, referring to the original so you can get the shape of the nose and other features correct.

How to create a film artwork design using photo pos pro

Step 7: Add a color layer

Make a selection of the base layer by holding Command/Ctrl and clicking on its thumbnail in the Layers Panel. Then make a new layer, setting its mode to Multiply.

How to create a film artwork design using photo pos pro

Step 8: Flood with color

Choose a skin color and use Option/Alt + Backspace to fill the selection with that color. Then deselect, and use the / key to lock the transparency of this layer so you can’t inadvertently paint over the edges.

How to create a film artwork design using photo pos pro

Step 9: Paint the rest of the color

Paint on the color layer using appropriate colors for the mustache and hair, glasses and shirt. Paint over the teeth area in pure white. This looks OK so far, but the Threshold filter produces ragged edges. We’ll fix that next.

How to create a film artwork design using photo pos pro

Step 10: Softening the edges

Hide the color layer, and use Command-Shift-Option+E / Ctrl-Shift-Alt+E to make a Merged Copy of the whole image. You can reveal the color layer now if you like, but be sure to work on the merged layer you just made. Use Filter > Blur > Gaussian Blur to soften the image.

How to create a film artwork design using photo pos pro

Step 11: Sharpening up

Softening the edges does, predictably, produce a fuzzy result. To fix this, open Layer > Adjustments > Levels, and in the Input Levels section drag the black and white triangles towards the center. This tightens up the blurring, producing smooth shapes. Don’t drag them all the way to the center or you’ll get ragged edges once again.

How to create a film artwork design using photo pos pro

Step 12: The finished image

Here’s the image of Stan Lee turned into a cartoon. It may not be up to Spider-Man quality, but that’s what made Stan Lee such an exceptional artist.
