Bit of a silly one, this! May need a little explanation...
I was doing a photo shoot with my friend's band this weekend. They're called Alto 45 - a sort of quirky-yet-slightly-melancholic electro-indie-pop band (if you know Hot Chip, particularly their first album, then you're in the right ballpark) - the sort that wear lab coats on stage and count a stylophone and a theramin on their equipment list.
Their bassist Steve (on the right) had bought this toy robot (their unofficial mascot) off ebay and customised it with stickers and random glued-on electronic components. While we had it with us, I thought we could do a quick comp of the band running away from the robot (a la virtually every distaster / sci-fi B-movie you've ever seen). I'll upload the component shots as before/after versions.
I've added quite a few filters and overlays to try and make this gel together. The backgrounds are a couple of random shots of flats in Norwich that I had from a while back. The fire and smoke, I have to admit, are not mine - might have been a little hazardous getting them myself - I got a random pic of some firefighters in action off t'internet (apologies to whoever may own the copyright).
Anyway, thanks for looking - hope you like it!
