Stranded Part 1

Chris and I have been planning these shots for several months now. First he got a haircut which postponed the shoot date. Then the super bloom happened. And then the super bloom happened - again. So we changed locations, and picked a date after what is supposed to be the last rainfall in California for the decade. I picked up the anamorphic adapter from my amigo Johnny the night before. And Chris and I headed out to get some cinematic stills for an up coming project we’re building.

Great... I would love to see these in black and white with a little "noire" effect.

I never really consider black and white. But that’s a good idea.

The setting reminds me the spaghetti western, very nice look

It's funny you mention that. Because when I was developing the concept, I was in my mind ripping off wholesale No Country for Old Men. Which is similarly styled after the Sergio Leone movies.

Most Photos of the Day focus on falsifying reality. Yours may a little as well, but at least it strives not to.

Epic shot, what lighting did you use? Or is this all natural?

For this shot, I was counting on the terrain doing a majority of the fill that I wanted. I knew i'd be at a dry lake bed - so I could count on a lot of fill.

I added one 4*6' GAF board reflector to the left of the talent. Primarily to get some fill highlight's and stronger contrast in the shadow's.

But it was pretty much ambient with a single reflector.

This photo reminds me of a show “ breaking bad”. Love it! Well done.
