In this chapter we go behind the scenes of the whole planning and preparation process around our 'Day of the Dead' portrait idea.
It involves meetings with stylists, interviews and some prop preparation.
2. COSTUME MAKING
In this video we look at a brand new blue print for making an incredible halo crown.
This method produces a strong, sturdy, fitting crown that does not go out of proportion when bent onto the head.
3. BTS STYLING
We take a behind the scenes look at the 8 hours of preparation it took to style our model with paint, flowers, costume and hair.
In this 'Day of the Dead' photoshoot lesson we look at a one light setup to give a beautiful moody overhead lit feel which sculpts the face and jaw so well.
In this second part of the 'Day of the Dead' shoot we look at adding in a second light to start to give us more control over our black tones throughout the image.
In this final part of the 'Day of the Dead' photoshoot we look at an innovative way of rim lighting that allows us to very gently seperate our model from the background in a new beautifully painterly way.
In this lesson we dive into photoshop and add even more magic into our image. This in depth lesson will take you through many many techniques to enhance you illustrative look.
8. PRINTING &
In this lesson we look at printing and ways to preserve or present our final art piece in a physical form. From papers to canvas, frame to glass.... you will learn how to create a physical, valuable product you can sell. We will look at not only printing but also talk with Chris Helliwell (Photographer and Framer) about the best practices.
9. WORKING WITH
In this chapter we take our final artworks into a contemporary art gallery. Here we chat with Richard Boyd-Dunlop about getting your work into galleries, pricing, selling and how it all works.
