STF: Mad Max
Welcome to another exciting Start To Finish!
I had an idea to shoot one of my signature rough and grungy portraits on location with my good friend and model, Vincent. I was inspired by the look of the "Mad Max" films, so I took Vincent out into the Arizona desert to dress up as an apocalyptic survivor.
I did not enter this shoot with the thought of using one specific technique or equipment to achieve my vision. Instead, I did multiple lighting techniques as well as trying a couple lenses to find the perfect image.
I had a lot of fun with this shoot, and I hope you get to learn a little bit as you watch.
