VW Tableaux: Thoughts and BTS

This shoot was an absolute blast. It was a large production that required a lot of work, attention, and collaboration with others. These are the qualities that I am most drawn to when it comes to creating image. I love big complex productions that require focus, motivation and energy, and I love to collaborate with people. 

Because I wanted to shoot while the sun was going down, which sets directly behind Lake Michigan, and because I didn't have the budget for a lot of lights, once the light was right, we had to really hurry to get everything shot. It was the most I have had to accomplish in such a short period of time. The production of the image was chaotic, but I think that lends itself to this image, because the image itself is chaotic. 

All in all, I am very happy with the final image, and I can't wait to develop this style further. 

So many people were instrumental in the creating of this image; too many to individually list. You know who you are. Thank you. I do want to give a special thanks to Kevin and Erika Burgess for being my main characters, as well as letting me use their amazing vehicles for this production.
