Series of Zombie movie-like posters

Chris Lane / Design, photography / / 3 Comments

Each year I put together a gathering of guy friends and dub them Zombie night. We do a Mystery Science Theatre 3000 style trashing of bad movies and play some kind of zombie themed board game. Along with that some great food, it ends up being a lot of fun.

I have been doing this for a few years now. For each party I create a poster design and follow a theme through the year. The first year I did illustrations, the second year I did typographic designs, and for 2013, the third year I wanted to make something like movie posters for zombie movies. Then when they are printed out at 12×18 they really will look like movie posters.

This series kind of runs in an ongoing story of a father and his son. You might see it as a cycle, the first being the actual ending, or maybe the first is just the beginning of the outbreak. Then each poster is relevant to the season that the part was in. So the first is of course Winter, then spring, summer, fall. They also transition in time. The first is at night, the next is just before sunrise, then day, then sunset. You can relate your own interpretation in the comments below.

I’d love to hear what you thought of these posters. Which was your favorite? Personally I like the spring one, but they all have their good and bad points.

Dreaming of summer

Cold!
I am obviously dreaming of summer. I was going through some old photos that I had not yet processed and found this one of stormy weather where the light was shining through onto the woods near my house. The color was quite intense. So, this is just a quick post to show how I wish it still was. The color is because it was in the fall, October 12th was when it was taken.

A Cold Night’s Moon

A full moon tonight and some pretty dramatic cloud coverage. Shortly after I took this shot the clouds pretty well covered the moon entirely. This is shot at ISO 1250, f/5.6, 1.3 seconds. Very little post processing, just dodged the lower third a little to show the treeline.
Not too cold out, only 7° above zero, Fahrenheit. Not bad for December 28th.

Snow on film

Chris Lane / photography / / 0 Comments

I still occasionally shoot film. I love the mystery of it, the imperfections of it, the warmth and feel of film. I love analog. I still use my Minolta X-700 that I have had for many years to shoot 35mm. This winter I shot a number of scenes that I would like to share. These are generally unedited, though I did some minor dodging and burning. These are things I could do in a tradition dark room, though in this case I did the edits in photoshop. I intend on having a traditional darkroom in my studio, but that will be a few years down the line.
This is a repost from a fellow blog I co-run called No Megapixel, that is exclusively for film photography.

Enjoy the photographs and as always, let me know what you think.
