Models and Logos

If you read this blog regularly (and really, does anyone?), you might remember my happy story about working up the nerve to ask a rock climber I encountered if he would sign a model release. We were in Joshua Tree at a beautiful time of day, just about an hour before sunset. He agreed, very willingly, and so I put the images in my submission folder.

Well, I am very happy to say that the files have been accepted. I am as pleased as ever with this guy's willingness to be a model. I think the rocks, the time of day, and his climbing technique all came together.

Here's the cautionary part of this story, though: I was so focused on getting the model release that I forgot about the many logos he was wearing! From his hat, which mentioned a certain baseball team, to his shirt, to his climbing gear, to his shows, logos everywhere! I got dinged, and rightly so, for not noticing these things.

A little (well, a lot) of time with PhotoShop, and he emerged logo-free.

I hope you like the photos.

And thanks again you, Mr. C. You're a trouper!

Bugsy, PS can do wonders on those logos. My toughest project to date was removing the name from a fireboat. Cloning to the rescue, followed by lots of brushing to smooth things out. I have to say I love my Wacom tablet :)
