More Blasts from the Past

Okay, I promise I didn't smoke in high school, but the following is a photo project I put together senior year. I had a deadline the next day and hadn't thought of anything. This is what I came up with. Follow it left to right.

This was presented in book form. Clearly my photoshop skills weren't spectacular and if I had taken my time with it, it would have come out much better. The following are two photographs from 2007 vacation to South Carolina.

Here are three shots that I dug up from my archives this evening. I got a little bored and also inspired from looking at Avedon photos all day. These were taken in 2004. Decided to give them a new spin, run them through photoshop for the first time. They're film negatives scanned by Wolf Camera, so the quality may not be fantastic, but I think they work.

Something to do with Closets. No Homo.

I've been doing this pretty much all week. I took yesterday off intentionally because everything was starting to look the same and everything tasted like oregano. We're planning to have individual posters for each character. Initially we were just going to tape an object onto each of them, but the way I shot them didn't allow that (my own fault). So I decided to cut out each character as well as their assigned object. The subject on the right doesn't have an object because his character is so out-of-place in the film that his being taped in explains enough (at least, that's the desired affect).

Type and taglines soon to come. Movie to come at some point in this century.

Coming Out of the Closet in 2009!

After speaking with the director, we decided to change out the top actor's head because his expression didn't seem appropriate with the bottom actor's. Now they both have very 1980s cinematic expressions.

I was really surprised I was able to make the switch, I've never done anything that drastic in photoshop before.

So this is a very early rendition of a movie poster I'm working on for the film I shot this summer. The idea behind all these promotional posters is to convey that this film is a very 1980s blockbuster type film. We really wished we had a painter to paint our posters for us, but seeing as none of us are being paid, that didn't really work out. So I'm left to the magic of photoshop. Thanks Adobe!

We had our photoshoot today. The director, director of photography and I had a brainstorming meeting a few days ago and came up with some great ideas. I think I made a mistake I used to make all the time when I first started taking photos though. I had already drawn these images in my mind and so when I was shooting I was getting more and more disappointed that I wasn't getting what was in my head. I thought I had overcome this but, apparently, I was in totally new territory and reverted to a less experienced sense of state. Real existential shit.
