An African American Woman Stands On The Road Ahead Looking To Future Possibilities, Brief Case In Hand

A concept stock photo featuring an African American Woman on the road to future possibilities, a long straight road that leads into a brilliant sunrise symbolizing the future, possibilities, the way forward and opportunity. This is an image of thinking positively, of optimistic states of mind, of confidence and dedication. You can tell by her stance and posture that she is ready for this journey to success and will not be stopped. The briefcase in her hand lends the image a business slant.


Stock Photos For Business And Lifestyle

This stock picture works equally well for business and lifestyle. Any entity, business or corporation who wants to help people on their journey to success can employ this image. The photo has been carefully crafted to by extremely flexible for cropping needs. It can be cropped vertically for a magazine cover or brochure use, and can work equally well as a horizontal for billboards and spreads. The strong, simple, graphic nature of the image insures that it is a quick read as a thumbnail increasing the versatility for pretty much any web use. By employing iconic symbols such as the road, the sunrise, and the briefcase, the image transcends language barriers and cultural differences. The model's African heritage is indicated by her hair. Her posture and bearing reinforce the positive tone of the photograph.


Photoshop Composited Concept Stock Photos

Photoshop is an essential tool for the stock pictures that I create for both business and for lifestyle. In this case I photographed the model in my studio being careful to light her in such a way that the look would be consistent with the sunrise photo that I knew I was going to strip her into. I used a clipping path, created with the pen tool, to create a selection of her. I then used the extract filter to strip out her hair. Next I dropped her in to an image of a long road leading into the distance. I inserted a sunrise between the layer of her and the layer of the road and used a layer mask to feather the two background images together. I finished off the background with the Filter>Render>Lens Flare filter to enhance the drama of the sunrise. A brightness/contrast adjustment layer over the background allowed me to "paint in" the shadows from her feet and legs.
