Amateur Yo-Yo Photography

A few from YoyoFactory.

Fancy! How are you doing the reflection?


(Peter Watt) #675

A glass surface and a low(ish) angle!


#676

Very nice. I can never tell if reflections are done with Photoshop (or the equivalent) these days!


(Peter Watt) #677

I generally try to avoid using Photoshop and just color correct (and remove blemishes) in Lightroom. Here’s a few similar ones of the Smashing Yoyo Company Mystery Box yoyos I got this morning thanks to @chaosgow


#678

You can get a pretty clean reflection with lighting and the right surface. I haven’t had the need to photoshop a reflection yet.


#679

What’s the trick to getting them to stand on the rim at 45 degrees like that? Remove support in photoshop or something?


#680

I’m just reallllly good at balancing things.


#681

Ok. Spent the last hour trying to balance all of my yoyos and all I got is a bunch of dinged up yoyos now. Need more practice I guess.

I guess a magician never reveals their secrets… :mage:‍♂


#683

(psss, try some thin fishing wire, or invisible thread from magic shops)

Those are lovely. Thank you!
