Hey, guys! For those of you that follow me on Facebook and Instagram, you know that I have been putting together a True Detective inspired series of images over the past month or so. Whitney and I are huge fans of the show and have been hooked since the night it premiered. I have to say, when it first showed, I couldn’t help but notice the opening credits. The sequence is utterly beautiful. It consists of a lot of dark imagery, but it’s all intriguing and put together as a series of awesomely orchestrated double exposures. As soon as I saw it, I was inspired. I knew I wanted to make some images that were similar in nature, and next thing I knew, I began a series. I ended with nine images total and I am pretty stoked on all of them.
Every image you see, with the exception of the three shots of inanimate objects, is a double or triple in-camera exposure that had texturing and stuff added in post. I would like to give a huge thank you to Whitney for being so awesome and patient with me while doing all of this. Setting up some of the shots was a pain in the rear to put it lightly, but it was all worth it. Also, thanks to my buddies Dustin and Brady for sitting in as subject for a couple frames, even though Brady’s didn’t make the final cut.
All images with human subjects are of Whitney and I except for one of Dustin.
Anyways, thanks to everyone for being so rad and supportive of this little series. I will be setting up a print store soon, so those interested can get them some original prints!
Take care and talk soon!
