Everything I Know about Photography in One Shoot: Got Vision?7:00 AM
It's pretty rare when one photo shoot by itself calls for the harmonious synergy of a huge range of photographic disciplines. Combining elements of commercial studio photography, fast action, environmental portraiture, light painting, and digital post production, this photo shoot represents THE culmination of everything I know about photography up to this point in my life.
Sitting here with images from one of the wildest conceptual Creative Sessions I've ever attempted, I am absolutely exhausted from the work and thrilled with the final results!
Alex Shiau, aka, Vision is a lyrical wordsmith. He's Asian, he raps, and he is good. I've followed his work for quite a while and have seen his live performances; they are simply fantastic! We recently shot together to create some cover artwork to promote his upcoming performances and cd/album which is currently being recorded in San Diego, CA.
Entering this shoot, I knew I needed to create images that complemented Visions level of lyrical genius. Let's hope these come close...
Yes he is flying. No he is not Photoshopped.
