I had the pleasure to once again work with sundaymag.tv on their January issue with this piece.
I had a professional hand model (j/k) work with me on holding the brush in a Buddha Board kit in front of a gray photo backdrop. Two alien bee strobes in octaboxes were used for lighting. Much masking was done to the end result and touching up of skin and adding shadow in Photoshop.
I wanted to once again add type to photgraphy.
Here’s what the setup looked like:
This photo is one of the fails.
The Buddha Board uses water and a brush and the writing gradually disappears as you paint. Fun office toy!
SUNDAYMAG.tv December Article Art.
I had the pleasure of creating the article art for Nathan Finochio of the band The Royal Royal and Hillsong at sundaymag.tv. Sunday| Magazine is quickly becoming the Internet’s first source for articles on modern church creative, leadership and technical issues.
"Breaking Free From the Norm" was the article title given to me.
I wanted to have a sharp looking couple walking forward with motion blur, momentum and a feeling of change from old to new. “Break” was a theme in December’s issue so I thought perhaps our person would be breaking through his desaturated self into the colorful saturated newness of life. And who better to hold hands with than his real life fiancé?
In the image sequence above you can see some of the broken down layers used to create the final image. Photo was taken with a Sigma 30 f/1.4 on Canon 60D.

Environmental set projection for local theatre. All original art created for triple-wide projection across full stage and walls.
"Broadway’s Back! 3" from Summer 2011.
"Godspell" from Summer 2012.
Elements created as composites in Photoshop and video created in Premiere, Motion, and After Effects.
So blessed to work with local theatre to help add a large scale visualization to sets.
Throwback Thursday… to last Christmas 2011
3-projector wide seamless video loop projected on the side of the whole width of our auditorium.
Created in After Effects using multiple elements composited and played through three HD Panasonic projectors.
You can see a projector cart in the middle.
Lights on the roof pointed down and copious amounts of haze were pushed upward toward the lights with fans. The weather was very chilly so the haze settled mid air, it was awesome looking.
This was one station of many stops throughout the event.
The event got rained out the next day though and the whole story told inside at the last minute. It was all totally worth it though! Even for all the good/bad/crazy times to make it happen, we learned so much.
