So as promised, I’ve been working especially hard on editing the photos from my shoot last week with You And What Army. I’ve finally got around to doing the head shots for their myspace. Halfway done! You can check out Dave’s and Kieran’s already.
Incidentally, here’s a time lapse of how exactly I went about producing Kieran’s head shot from the original photo for your viewing pleasure:
Again, all of the shots were initially taken with a Nikon D40x in manual focus and with a standard lens.
The backgrounds are transparent, too – nifty! It’s still proving a lot of fun to do, though, I relish being able to go crazy with colours and effects, and YAWA are the perfect band to do that with. I’ve still got to finish editing the photos of Jamie and Zak, but these two should give you a good indication of things to come.
Seeing as how I like to think that Graphics Girl can be an online portfolio as much as a place to help people out with their own work, I figured it was about time I filled you guys in on the photo-shoot I recently did for Rock/Rave/Rap band You And What Army.
I had a whole lot of fun with this project, mostly because it’s giving me a chance to abuse overlay and screen layers in Photoshop and create something ridiculously epic and spacey looking. If there’s one thing I’m sure of, it’s that you can never have too many retina-burning laser effects.
Here’s the first finished group shot:

All of the photos were taken with a Nikon D40x SLR and edited (quite obviously) in Photoshop CS3.
Hopefully, I’ll have finished with the rest of the shots soon! It’s been a very busy week for me in terms of creative ventures so I’ve had to neglect the site a bit, for which I apologise. You guys can all look forward to more free resources and photoshop tutorials in the week to come, though!
