This is the image which I have printed for my Studio hand in.

Here I have taken the portraits that I shot in the studio and added them to the background which I shot previously.

I can’t decide which model looks best, I also have added both model to the image (as seen above). I really can’t decide which looks best.

I am very pleased with the overall result from the studio, especially as it was only my second time working in the studio environment. 

Adjusted the background slightly.

I used Photoshop to manipulate the image, adding more pillars in the background, and also to convert to black and white, and layered it with a blue filter - to add a colder tone to the image.

Here I have created a rough test for my movie poster combining my background, and a lighting test that I shot with Mick in the studio. This is the resulting image, which I think works.For the final images I will be using a model wearing a hat, just like the poster that I drew my inspiration from.Any thoughts guys?
*please remember that this is just a rough test of the image, lighting and font.

This is the pose that I have chosen for my Moive poster. I like this poster as it portrays the antagonist of the film as opposed to the norm of the face of the protagonist. The lighting and the pose suggest that he is a mysterious character.

This is a page from my sketch/note book showing my plan for my movie poster. I have chose “The Adjustment bureau’

Some fun with Photoshop using splicing, black and white conversion, cropping and canvas sizing to create something rather interesting with the photos of Mick from the studio session.

Colour picture of Mick from the studio. A look of contemplation and discomfort, shot from beneath the subject. Possibly could be used in a sci-fi or horror genre.

My first shots from a studio (ever) - please don’t judge them.
