What I’ve Been Working On!

16th December 2013

juxOver the past couple of months, I’ve been traveling around and meeting up with some incredible artists as part of my job shooting for Juxtapoz magazine! Alex Pardee curated the current issue of Juxtapoz, and based it all around imagination. That made my job of shooting the portraits for this issue super exciting! We wanted these imaginative artists to be shown in a way that shows both them and the worlds that they create, in a unique way.

juxThe creativity, started as soon as you flipped the page to a table of contents!

I had the joy of shooting Tara McPherson, The Lonely Island, Scott CMatt Ritchie, Tim Shaffer, Wolvesmouth, and Alex Pardee! I was so excited to be able to see the photos I take in something that I could actually hold in my hands.

Heres a couple of pages of my photos, that are in the issue of Juxtapoz magazine, that is out right now!!!

Juxtapoz July Issue 1

In this issue of Juxtapoz magazine, they focused on the annual event/ reunion comic book enthusiasts known as Comic Con! If you haven’t been to a Comic Con event, I’ll have you know its one of the most fun, over stimulating experiences you’ll ever have. As exciting as Comic Con , it can be known to cause anxiety real quick. Luckily, in this issue, Alex Pardee and I got to give tips on how to survive your first Comic Con adventure!

Juxtapoz 2I had a fun time remembering all the characters and characters dressed like characters, from my past Comic Con excursion. You can see my photos from years of Comic Con-ing, in the current issue of Juxtapoz!

How Tu-esday: Make a hungry light box!

22nd January 2013

Like most people, my house isn’t properly set up for a photo studio so like to improvise! When I need to take pretty straight forward product shots, I end up making friends, in order to help me build a light box! Its a simple and cheap way to create clean and evenly lit shots. Heres how you can make one too.

You’ll need these things to make both the friend and the light box:

To make a friend, just cut and paste like so:make the eyes and teeth, and hold them off to the side until later

Heres how you make the light box:Lay the cardboard flat. Cut along one panel of the box using the ruler as a guide to keep the cut from veering too close to the fold of the box.

Repeat that process 2 more times so that only one cardboard panel is still uncut.

Tape up the box. By now, your box should be able to fit your Totoro, like so.

Cut three of the flaps off of the box

Tape the tracing paper to 2 insides of the box, and one on top of the box. This way, to take nice overhead shots (like these), all you have to do is lift up the flap and shoot straight down!

Cut the poster board to the width of the box, and tape them from the back board up, out.

Now bring your friend out into the bright sun that would usually cast shadows on your subject, and try feeding it to your new friend. I bet he’ll eat all the shadows and (if its yummy enough) your subject, too!

Look how quickly he ate my Jello!!! 3 shutter clicks and the whole thing was gone.
