Spot UV used to create movement in photography

Spot UV creates movement on the photography on the Incycle cover

Incycle is the magazine published by Saddleback featuring all the latest news on the world of cycling. In this issue Spot UV creates movement in the cover photography.

This issue of incycle has a cover which almost looks like the cyclist is jumping out of the page.  This is due to the Spot UV finish which is applied to the background of the cover photo to emphasise the motion of the background of the shot and give focus and clarity to the rider.

The Spot UV is applied in slits to add to the blur of the background

 

The Spot UV creates movement as it was applied in short slits instead of complete coverage, which gives pace in the background of the shot and the rider was sharp in the foreground with no Spot UV which lifted him off the page. It is a very dramatic effect when you see it in the flesh and the light bounces off the Spot UV (Not so easy to photograph but we hope you can appreciate the effect. )

There is no Spot UV applied to the bike and rider which makes them look like they are jumping out of the page

 

You could use a Spot UV  to pick out the detail of your products or to differentiate between 2 elements of a photograph or as it has been used here, to emphasise speed and movement in sporting photography. Brilliantly executed here to great effect.  Another success for the cover of this prestigious magazine. But what technique will come next?
