This is the final photo Dean chose (below) as his promo shot. I love the shot, my only issue with it was that it’s slightly blurred. I was able to sharpen it marginally, but it cannot be enlarged without losing overall quality. I also didn’t appreciate the light flare running across Deans shoulders and chest. This isn’t a problem for Dean, the light added a grungier feel to the shot and he is using the pic small so it will appear roughly same size as below on his site.
Meanwhile, I have been busy trying to work out how to use this photo to create something different. I was in no way satisfied with a slightly blurred image, and it was not coming to the redbubble party looking as is!
I don’t think there is a need to choose between the two, I just wanted to show you the original and the edited versions, to give the project more depth.
So I added noise, a linear transmission filter and utilised a materialiser from KPT.
This is the end product. Consider it the sequel to Hostage Plea, another chapter of underground illegal electronic communication. The possibilities for a story here are many: held for ransom, bargain plea, secret communication. You guys can decide.
