  1. ★ Attention the heads
  2. of the content, photo divisions. Looking for a job.

    Dear Sirs

    I propose the implementation of my technology for shooting with automatic knockout in your company  — create the necessary custom equipment, train staff and dock the process with your current ERP/CMS environment.

    First, it works

    It works reliably and predictably with guaranteed projected results.

    It dramatically reduces the cost

    of the photo production process, shortens the deadline from days and weeks to thirty seconds and at the same time strongly raises the quality.

    Fully finished photos

    for placement in ERP/CMS and online can be withdrawn real-time directly from the photographer's workplace.

  6. Download and explore the raw camera files, samples and other images from the folder.

  7. ★ Key features of the proposed solution 
  8. It's fast. It is very fast.

    The technology was created for the sake of the speed of processing increase. 
    Reaching from more than tenfold to hundredfold shortening of the deadlines, we received the following bonuses:

    It's cheap, it's extremely cheap

    A mass of people and processes are excluded from the production chain and it can significantly save on job cuts.

    It's easy, it's very simple

    Personnel requirements are dramatically reduced. Hi-end quality photos can be produced by any tidy worker.

    You save, you save a lot

    You save on cutting staff and wages while improving the quality and shortening deadlines.

    Own studio may be much cheaper than outsource

    If you still do not have own studio, it is possible that you senselessly enrich your outsource contractors.

    Hi-End Quality Knockout!

    For all that, cheap as ever (less than junk market offers) — you obtain the images of maximum achievable quality.

  9. ★ You save
  10. at the same time get hi-end knockout quality and real-time process. My unique skills and know-hows break beyond eternal «fast-best-cheap» triangle. With me you get all three.

    «Fast, Cheap, and Good… pick two»

    — no longer works. You get all.

    Just look at the sample

    processed without involving manual skills (crop from 2000x3000px finished image).

    The finished image is made without retouching

    and without Photoshop or Lightroom in seconds after the shutter release, without manual intervention.

    And the samples are not 300 x 300 px but 4000 x 5000.

  17. ★ The proposed technology 
  18. can be implemented in any production environment — in the model shooting, photographing jewelry, shooting of white goods, hardware, staples, shoes, grocery and so on.

  41. ★ The basis of the technology 
  42. is a special way of shooting. Each frame is duplicated backlit. Derived from the backlight frame mask is used for knockout.

    Watch a video

    which briefly describes the main features of the process.

    The idea of a backlit frame itself

    is not a panacea, but in combination with the techniques I have created it produces phenomenal results.

  43. ★ Hat with a veil 
  44. The veil made of translucent filament.

  46. Download and explore the raw camera files, samples and other images from the folder.

    Hat with a veil is a complex scene

    Because it is a fiber and this fiber is translucent. Hell for the retoucher.
    Or it is nothing for the retoucher if you pay him for frank trash.

    The point is that through my technique

    of shooting and processing, the image «FinishedFogHat1.jpg», https://goo.gl/6gdkrh is produced automatically, without employee remuneration with minimal operator actions and much faster than usual «$5 clipping path» trash. Not taking in the account the fact that by hands this result, in principle, is not reproducible.

    Besides. Five bucks for each image you keep to yourself.

    «It is taken too small»

    just because this scale is more than enough for technical requirements (size and output resolution) in this production session.

    And the used setup
    (camera fixed above the capture cradle) can be used for the shooting of objects having a huge variation in the size, of about 1500mm to 100mm without rearrangements (without shifting of camera, light, or the focus ring). This cap, for example, was shot in a single session with the five-foot stoles and seven-foot hammocks, and the camera (with prime lens) was not shifted.

    For appearing shot оbjects larger or smaller

    camera can be shifted or used with other lens. Сapture cradle can be made with a motorized camera motion.

  47. ★ The given examples
  48. in general, fully illustrate the essence of my offer — automatic knockout of images.

    Any enterprise

    which needs continuous updating of the site is interested in optimal cost of production scheme.

    Dream is

    to place on the site the raw camera images. When between the shutter release and placement on the site neither time nor resources are consumed. It is obvious that images are obliged to meet the specified quality standards.

    For the sake of it

    it is possible to shoot on a decorative backgrounds, decrease the quality requirements to knockout background or placement on the site frank trash.

    My technology

    allows automatic and perfect pit background. It allows to obtain an image of the highest quality and, simultaneously, an extremely low price and, herewith, in real time.

    In addition to all other benefits

    for such manner of shooting you can fully concentrate on the light of the subject of shooting. As long as you have to keep the background illuminated while shooting — from the nature of things — you will have to agree with certain degradation of the object outlines, especially when the object merges with the background.

    Knocking background

    with light formers, you inevitably provoke the degradation of the image. Through backlit frame you can stay focused on lighting the object itself.

  49. ★ Of course it also possible to knockout furs 
  50. Now furs are processed with the means of Photoshop script. Version CS2 is quite enough.

  57. ★ For companies in need
  58. of continuous updating of images on the site this technology:

    • Reduces requirements to experience and qualifications of staff
    • Speeds up image processing, shortens deadlines
    • Cheapens production of the images
    • And at the same time improves the quality of images with perfect knockout, depriving them of the traditional «sable rims», shadows and/or lighted in through holes, borders and areas adjoining/closing with background

    To paragraphs 1-4 applicable epithets «acutely», «strongly» and «dramatically».

    In cases when subject requires

    operator intervention — the intervention is far less laborious than with traditional methods of retouching. It is not voluminous, tedious and doesn't require precision movements.

    It is possible to implement a real-time production

    of finished images from the workplace when a few seconds after clicking the camera shutter, fully finished image are available in the ERP\CMS repository for posting on the site.

  59. ★ Profit of this technology 
  60. is produced even by the most simple outlines.
