Ethan Gulley’s Zombie Apocalypse Photo Series
I’ll be honest, the zombie infatuation in pop-culture these days doesn’t do much for me. With that being said though, when I came across Ethan Gulley’s Apocalypse series I took notice. Being a big advocate of shooting personal work, I naturally took interest in Ethan’s series.
Ethan, inspired by The Walking Dead and in the spirit of Halloween,put this whole series together out of his own pocket. It was shot in and around northern Alabama, where he is from. Makeup was done by himself and friends. It was his first time working with liquid latex and as he put it, “it was a learning experience.” To make the hair on the zombies appear greasy they used conditioner. He did the eyes on the zombies in post, and as far as lighting goes he shot mostly natural light. In the shots with lighting he used a couple vivitar flashes with umbrellas or just bare.
Personally I think it’s pretty rad to see someone go all in on a personal project like this. To see the whole thing, check it out on Ethan’s site here.
