First try with plexiglass

Ok so my friend got me some 2-2x2 plexiglass from his work. I pieced it together and tried it out. I don't know how to blend in the crack/edge part. I tried cloning and it made it look messy.

Please CC on anything I need to improve on. Always willing to learn!

Setting: ISO 640, SS 1/160, f3.5

Cool! I can't wait to get plexiglass.. sometime before my youngin' turns one, I'm hoping. I love that you can see his full reflection. Maybe you can try pulling it all away from the background a bit more, though, to avoid that shadow? I learned that recently from someone on here. And as for PPing the cracks out from under the glass, I would say just try doing some extensive cloning. What a cute little model, though! I'm loving his sponge bob pants! Smile

I love the reflection! As for the edge of the plexiglass, I usually just clone that out. I am seeing some darker horiz lines right at his neck and a little below in the reflection...wondering where those came from? Maybe scratches in the plexi? Or am I seeing things?

I like your lighting. What are you using? Other than that small shadow it looks really good to me.

Oh, and I recognize that toy! Dd has the same thing! Smile

I don't have plexi and I pretty much suck at pp, so I can't help there.

I just wanted to say this looks reallly nice - LOVE his reflection in the plexi. Even with the slight shadow, this looks GREAT!

TFS,

I use the healing tool on the line from the glass and that always works for me. definitely pull him back from the backdrop though. cool that you got the glass!

Healing tool usually works well on things like that.
