Work of art? Art for work?

A while back I asked my workmates if I could take some pictures of them and make “little-big-people”art. After quite a few hours or should I say a couple of days behind the computer, alot of figuring out the things that to me represented each individual and a little magic here and there. I finally finished the posters. And I’m quite satisfied with the outcome!

Hope you like it!

Amy Winehouse

You know how you have to be in a certain mood to listen to a certain kind of music? Well I’ve listened to Amy Winehouse before, always loved her voice! But it hasn’t been until now or during this week that I’ve really come to appreciate, or how can I put it…” feel” her voice and lyrics. It was like everything struck me at once. Isn’t it weird sometimes.

Any who I just decided on dedicating a post to Amy and to tell people to go and listen to the album Back to black!

The Boy – Customised Posters

I while back I did some customised minimalist movie posters for a customer that wanted to give something to a friend. Thought I would add the posters to my portfolio and post them for you guys to look at. Show you a little of the things I’ve been up to these last couple of weeks.

Voodoo, The Progress

I don’t really know where to start on this one. I got some questions on how I made my last post and how long it took in photoshop, I didn’t really keep a timer on it, but I think I spent around 20-30 hours all in all, to make all the pictures that I posted in last weeks post. Then I guess one has to add the 4 hour photo shoot on that.

The items and textures added on with the magic of photoshop, are my own pictures, creative commons and from other collections.

For everything else, me and Nasime saved and found random stuff that we thought would fit into the shoot. Like old cans, jars, candles, plants and other stuff.

 

So here you go, a little behind the photoshop scene!

If you haven’t seen the post from last week’s, check it out, might make more sense if you look at that one first.

In all honesty, with a little order and text you can come a long way. It’s easy to get lost in all the layers once you get started. Just naming some of the layers saves you a lot of time, and I mean A LOT of time. I learnt that the hard way.

November Voodoo

I finally get to show you the best part of when great minds think alike!  Me and Nasime have for a reallllyyy long time been talking about having a “Modern Voodoo Photoshoot”. Both of us being on a low budget, we finally pulled it off, low budget and everything!

Saving old cans, jars, wood and loads of other stuff. Used tinfoil taped on styrofoam as reflectors, and with a little good and random help from Sarah, some serious magic in photoshop. I’m proud to present “The November Voodoo Shoot”.

I think I spent a good 25-30 hours in photoshop all together Geeeeeezzz, BUT I loved every single minute of it! (But more on that in next weeks post, if you wanna know a little bit more on the behind the scenes, make sure to peek in next week, I’ll do a before and after.)

How about a little like or a share on this one!

Enjoy!

Overexposed

 

 

This is going to be a really short project post. Well not a project post more like a work in progress test post.  I recently started to look for old portraits, wanted to try working an overexposed look with a lot of contrast. Nothing much really, still working on it.

oh and yeah, I might have some good stuff coming upp this month on the blog, Small projects I’ve started, and maybe if I’m lucky some photos from Norway and Denmark. Fingers crossed.

 

Have a good one and enjoy the portraits!

Random portraits

bannerTwo weeks ago I posted this “work in progress” thing here on the blog. You know the whole deal about the fact that I didn’t have any portraits of relatives and friends, and that I maybe would want to have something to hang on the wall in the future. So here yah go, some portraits of random family members and friends, with a little twist.
