excellent shots, love the pic of JFJ in the carbon freeze
Awesome pics ! I love the Mayor !!!
Great pics Braks!
Now that I have my suit completed, I'd definitely be "in" for a photo shoot if you're ever back in Cali.
I might be doing a shoot in early Oct somewhere around the San Diego area. If you can make it, I will have to take you out for breakfast since you covered it the last time!
Thanks for all the compliments everyone. However, I want to point out that it is the costumes that make the pictures, not the other way around. The hard work and excellent outfits really make this job VERY easy! I am blown away again and again at the skill and talent we have here!
I may just cruise down for the festivities for this one
From what I heard, The pics with the upsidedown knees were taken right after jeremy was hired to play fett. Apparently the first time he had to put the suit on, or one of the first times, he had no one to help him suit up, and he simply made a mistake & put the knees on upside down. Thats what i heard!!
I still wanna know how he got dressed solo. Great pictures.
This is one of the coolest pics i have ever seen of a fan Fett.
fantastic costume, fantastic photography :thumbup
even the knee's on on upside down WOW......very carbon freeze chamber
Lol, would anyone mind if I took these down to walmart and had them printed out? Or does someone here do that already, hmmm?
i always love lookin at these pics
which is why I want to print them out!!!
Brak's: are you using seamless paper for a backdrop? What sort of lighting set-up do you have? What camera are you using?
Ultra Sweet job on the pics and the costumes all are rocking! Looking forward to the day I finish my Pre-pro and get a photoshoot.
My light setup is... hmmm..
I have a key light high and to the right at 45. I have a fill light a bit lower and to the left at 45. I tend to play with the intensity of each depending on the model. I have a hairlight that I sometimes use to seperate a model from the background, but rarely. I have a background light that is mounted almost directly above the model.
For a pic like the carbon freezing chamber, I had one light on the floor, under fett, with an orange gel. I had a blue gel on the background. I think I also had the hairlight on in that photo which brings in the white lining on the left side of the image.
For a pic like the vader kneeling, I had two assistants holding light down low on either side of Vader.
That is pretty much it. While 90% of my pics have the same lighting, I am not afraid to adjust and move the lights as needed for a nicer effect. The problem with that is the time and effort it takes to get those type of images... If I had more time with each person I would definitely be taking more pictures with specific and specialized lighting.
BTW, The camera I have is a Rebel XT. It is not the top of the line, but it is more camera than I currently know how to use (I am still just learning all of this stuff) and it seems to turn out photos that people are happy with.
Excellent job as always Art!!!

...woa... awesome 3po
C-3PO has got to be a tricky shoot because of the reflections. I would love to see this costume in person. Maybe C4?
