Perth HBF run for a reason 28th May 2017

A great day for the annual HBF run for a reason, where thousands of people in Perth participate for various reasons.. mainly good i hope.. also an opportunity for fellow Perth Photographers to catch up shooting for International Photography Agency, Marathon Photos annually. We have shot this race for quite a number of years now (lost count) but its always fun, with the early cold morning.. but i must say, it always turnout to be a great day of sunshine, maybe its just the wonderful weather we have here in Perth! Its always interesting to see the thousands of different types of people joining this run for a good cause.. attached are some pics taken on the day..

She looks like a model i shot a few years back.. Astrid.. is that you?

listening to music .. while running.. best idea ever!

This is what most people end up.. doing in the run.. they walk.. ūüėÄ

Artwork Photography

Very recently we had the task to ‘save’ a mural artwork done by the staff of the Department of Employment of the Australian Government, not a common photography job request that one would get, but definitely a challenge. The brief was, part of an office wall in QV1 building was painted by the staff a few years back, but because they moved floors the wall art would eventually be strip of for the next commercial occupants. The wall measure over 7 meters in length and nearly 2.7 meter in height, added to the challenge was, the in build furnitures and different wall dimension where the art was. We did an on site consultation and noted the ‘challenges’ that we will be facing.

The Wall Mural at the Department of Employment, Government of Australia

As you can see above, a picture from the onsite free consultation, not the cleanest capture by camera, the wall has its corners, side furnitures, over head projector screen and all, there will be quite a bit of photoshopping and ‘art’ inclusion to produce a clean final piece.

We shot the mural a couple of weeks later, and worked on it on Photoshop, I must say, this job requires more than the average imagination and creativity to recreate the whole piece again. Once the artwork was completed, we send the final digital proof to our client for approval before print. We found the mural was quite long and would benefited from separating them into 2 pieces of artwork that could be connected in the middle. It will also make transportation of the canvas easier for our clients, they agreed to it,  and hence:

 

This is the final image modification, but it needs to be divided into 2 for the canvas. Some of the obvious modification here is the bottom left, middle top, getting rid of the projector screen and also the right where the wall was folded.

The final product, came out beautifully and we personally delivered it to the client that was very happy with the results!
