Sector9 Longboards

As promised, I did a commercial/ad shoot of my board.

I took all the photos with my D300 + 28mm prime lens. Pulled them into photoshop and spent about an hour cutting out and arranging the photos. I really like the way it came out, except for the cutout of the graphics part. I did that using "quickmask", as opposed to the magic wand, which I used for the top view of the deck. I still haven't discovered a great way to cut things out. I loathe the lasso tool, so I usually end up using quickmask, which takes forever and needs a lot of attention after the initial cutout. Perhaps I'll give the lasso another go one of these days.
