These were some basic warm ups for a project I was fortunate enough to be apart of with Raul Ramos, Brent Pickrell, Stephen Ehrman and Jayson Miller. It didn't make it quite as far as we would have hoped but it definitely gave us all an insight into communication and working in a pre-production pipeline. I have a few other pieces from that time that I'l post in the coming months.
First set was 20 minutes a piece, second set took 45 min - 1hr.
These were some weekend studies based off various photos I found scouring through my friends Facebook photo albums. The video time lapse can be seen here.
This next set was fun to experiment with. A while ago I decided to fill 2 pages in my Moleskine with nothing but black and white environment thumbs. It was a quick way to practice composition and break down the value patterns into fundamental shapes. From that list I picked off a handful and spent 30 minutes or so laying in values and playing with the lighting. Definitely learned a lot working with these.
