4.48 Psychosis

A few friendly folks I know in the theatre community asked if I could help them out with an image for their Fringe play. I said I could, so yesterday we shot around and I made this facial composite for their poster:

And the original shots before merging:

ETC’s “The Tempest: Adrift In Time” Part 2

See previous post here for additional shots. And see my posts on EclecticPond’s site for the making of the poster and the official live shots (which won’t be reposted here, so, go check those out. They’re awesome.) I believe I promised more Tempest photos would be forthcoming, and today I am delivering on that.

To start, here are some shots of Caliban (with make-up once again by the wizard-like Daniel Klingler of Neck-Up Design.

And then, to compliment the set on ETC’s site (you have loaded that in another tab, right?) here’s some extras and b-side takes from the production shoot, as well as some BTS stuff from myself as well as a few rare ones of me working (thanks Megan my love!)

Blur Screen: Pretty In Post

CapturFiles-201408234_1008 (1)

 

I’m not shy about admitting I’m a huge proponent of post production. Sure, getting a photo as close to right as you can in camera is important, but I’d say at best a straight-out-of-camera image can only ever realize 70% of its true potential. The difference between an OK photo and a great photo is usually found in pushing the right sliders. And, because the original goal of this blog was to show the secretive invisible work behind making art, here’s a side-by-side of a test shot for my upcoming blur screen project showing the photo as rendered from raw by LR, and the final develop decisions for the series. Bit of a difference.
