About the DVD

“The Wounded Soldier” is a new SLR Lounge Premium Tutorial teaching you how to create 3 creative conceptual photographs of a World War II soldier. The goal of this World War 2 inspired conceptual photography tutorial is to give you a deep understanding of what goes into the making of a creative photo-shoot like this. In the DVD I will be covering everything you could possibly think of:

We start out by going through the pre-production process: I teach you guys a technique for coming up with creative concepts, and once we have an idea, we take the concept deeper and move into thesketching-phase. We also talk about building teams, casting models, scouting for locations and looking for props and gear.

Once we’ve gone through the pre-production, I give you guys a behind the scenes look at the photo-shoot itself. You’ll see everything from packing up, to applying special effects makeup and shooting the different pre-planned shots. We then return back to the studio, and re-light the scenes in a controlled environment and breakdown all the different elements in my lighting setups. 

Then, once we’ve covered all the “technical” details, we move into the post-production -phase. I have included the RAW-files in this DVD, so that you can easily follow along, and test out the different techniques that I teach. We start out by doing some base adjustments in Lightroom 4 and then continue editing and fine-tuning the images in Photoshop CS6.
