Creating a Photo That is a "Vision of the Future"

Aaron Nace from PHLEARN wanted to make an image that was based on the idea of a future where the sun had become so bright that humans would be forced to see the world through technologically-advanced glasses. Watch how they went from concept drawing to finished photo in their most recent tutorial.

There was a time when this kind of thing really was a vision of the future, but with Google Glass already here, maybe this still-somewhat-futuristic image will become commonplace not too long from now. I'll wish for flying cars next!

execution is nice, but those 'technologically advanced glasses' look completely rediculous.

That concept drawing; I died.
Good shoot, though. Very retro-futuristic.

Worst concept, ever.

I paused at 0:57 just to see if I could make out the sketch. No luck. Overall, I like the execution. Seems like an 80's hollywood version of the future.
