I'm a person who tends to stay with a limited palate of photographic techniques. I like straight photography with some strong graphic design. I use some graphic techniques, but I try not to just throw everything in the book at a picture. Lately, I've been doing a lot of car shots because I was lucky enough to be taught about cars from one of top three car photographers in the world, and then I got the work for the other two.
I'm not a car fanatic. They are sculptures to me, horsepower, handling and associated driver stuff has never been on my mind. Today I decided I needed to get out of what has become a rut, so I decided to create a psychedelic poster from the 60's and the early 70's.
John Travolta was an icon of that era. He played an air head stud muffin, who was what they called back, a chick magnet named Vinnie Barbarino in a series called, "Welcome back Kotter." I picked this shot I took of him to plug his first movie, the horror classic, "Carrie."
I picked this head shot that has made the young women my wife works with at Starbucks go a little crazy. I used most of the posterization effects from that period, added a few from now. I think it came out well, and got my interest in different styles in photography.
