A couple of weeks ago we had a very interesting client at the studio. He is a author and is publishing a christian theme book. He wanted the cover photo to illustrate an idea from some scripture. Basically, the idea was that burning arrows were being shot at and through him and he was calm, defiant and unafraid.
He wanted the image to appear modern, not biblical but gritty and powerful. Above is the result of the shoot. It was interesting working with flames and arrows. I bought the arrows a pawn shop. Matt (pyro dude) and I set the arrows on a clamp, lit it with some fire paste and shot away.
We then clipped several of the images and placed them in the photo.
The challenges presented by digital possibilities are endless and really pushes our creativity and photoshop skills. No wonder we are photo freaks, check that “superfreaks”.
