MA Portrait Photographer | Photoshop Expert

With the release of Iron Man 2 about a week away, what better way to celebrate it than to create a concept portrait of me as Peter Parker revealing myself to be Spider-Man.

Here’s how I pulled it off.

First – I hired the fabulous Massachusetts Portrait Photographer Lynn Quinlivan from Lynn Quinlivan Photography to take the portraits.

Second – I posed for the image wearing a red Batman t-shirt underneath my button up. I did this so the red would reflect a bit on my blue dress shirt.

Third – I took a picture of Spider-Man in the train scene of Spider-Man 2. Ironically the part where Peter Parker’s identity is revealed.

Fourth – I used photoshop to outline my shirt being revealed and replaced it with Spider-man’s suit on a separate layer. This took some stretching of the suit to match up with my body.

Fifth – I added shading around the outside of the suit to illustrate the shadows the dress shirt would of made, and to add realism to the image.

Lastly – I bumped the contrast of the suit to heighten the red color.

Before and After

Tell me what you think and let me know who your favorite super hero is and if you will be attending the Iron Man 2 premiere. I’ll chat with you all later, my spidey senses are tingling.

Well, this is great! I didn’t really follow how it is done but not important. The image is wonderful! My favorite is, sorry to say, not Spiderman, as he uses all those webs. I like Superman because he is the first one in my book that was a super hero. My real super hero is J. C. for He made me new without any strings attached.
