Finally Iím DONE, ignoring the weather forecast and lucking out over two intense days this week to shoot Sequences 3 & 4 - six video clips & 85 stills all to be boiled down to a handful of final images. I had a blast...or two...and not a moment too soon, my wifeís about to have an urgent foot operation that forces us to rapidly/temporarily decamp to an apartment with full wheelchair access for 6 to 9 months. Itís not a dio-friendly pad so the enforced sabbatical starts right now, packing already underway.
Provisionally there are around 40 images in total but Post Prodís stretched & fits pics in when time allows, so weíre some way off a Photo Feature...in fact itís just too many for a PF. So in a somewhat rushed decision hereís the deal Ė comic strip. Iíll periodically post photos in this thread, moving through the storyline to completion hopefully before Xmas. Inevitably some will be, or resemble, test shots posted earlier - canít be helped if I couldnít do any better. Depending on how it pans out there may be room for a small group of monochromes of unseen + best re-cropped for a New Year Feature.
Grateful thanks to Mike Koenig/165thspc for helping on this project, a Master Photoshopper who saved a number of good-but-compromised images from oblivion & carefully tweaked others. Iíll duly credit those modified images primarily because he deserves it of course, and also because purists might want to know by definition that the other pictures are ďas shotĒ. Modifications were typically for prop-spin/suspension lines but he also magicked away my more glaring constructional/photographic defects.
The storyline was set up in the first couple of pages of this thread so lights down & on with the show. Thanks for staying with me this long, Iím too beat to come up with a killer track involving vehicles so...hereís a jolly ditty from the dark side instead, interpret as you likehttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vb5XXmGqYTY
