This is exactly the way to do a beach figure photo, the only issue is there is no footprints left XD
xnatsux9 days ago#98470613Hey, hello! I'll be happy to answer this.
First, it may look like photoshop, but the part of the feet is not retouched. I have only photoshoped some people from the bottom swimming. The light is the one that the sun had too. :)
How I did it? I took many photos before having this one, but in fact I have one that I liked the most to upload (with a wave).
The technique is (i think a lot about that, because isn't my fist photo that i upload on the beach, at myfigure), take a chance with the waves of the sea.
You put the figures with they base in a sand hole and bury it in the sand on after. The base now is covered with sand, so some feet are not visible at the photo for the sand.
Later, you leave as lumps and shapes on, so is ugly, and here is it... because you only have to wait for a wave.
When the wave passes overhead, it flattens the sand and carries away the remaining sand. In a fact, which completely camouflages the bases and some feet's. And there is my lazynes to camuflage the bases, i do sometimes, because some photos are imposible, or the sand it gone with the wave. But it works!!
Problem, being the sea, the waves can come very strong, and as it happened, I lost the base of Rin, because a wave ripped the base and the figure out of the sand (it was not a suitable day ... I do not recommend anyone to do photos with bad sea *** Look the Shirahoshi photo of yesterday with the wave ***). I have many photos with some figure on the ground unfortunately. And scratches on others...
But i love Free, and i think there was the epic photo that i wanted from one of my fav anime.
There was a lot of people around asking me on the beach, taking photos of me and the figures, passing away, and making selfies there. So i had a lot of patience to get the picture.
I hope I have resolved the question ^^ And sorry for my bad English, but isn't my first language.
Thank you!

Thank you, i took some before this one. The answer is that i was to move the figures and put them at an angle that the 6 figures could be seen. Nagisa doesn't look good in all the photos, that position is very rare. And Rei too, so I tried some photos with different combinations, until I got to this one and I liked. Or Sousuke looking to the sea, and missing HIS body. So i just tried, moving figures and having patience to look good.

And I'm happy about the result. So so happy, and happy that a lot of people like it!

Thank you so much

Amazing!! Thank you so much for sharing :D Although it's a shame that you lost your base, at least you have a beautiful memory from it. And hopefully you can find a replacement base to use, I'm sure you can make something maybe!
