Nominated – International Photography Master’s Cup

Awards

We’re celebrating this morning as we landed a nomination in this prestigious world competition. We’re doubly excited as we only entered one image whereas most entrants have multiples!

Although we didn’t win, we think it’s pretty amazing to be nominated in such a massive global comp. We’ll be patting ourselves on the back all day.

The irony in this is that this image was never used for it’s intended purpose – it was a Government project that changed tack after this image had been commissioned and completed!

Commercial Work

Random, Update

Ok, ok..so it looks like all we’ve been doing lately is shooting puppies (yes, that’s not funny, we know!). We are actually sitting on a few commercial jobs that we can’t publish just yet as they haven’t been released to the world. Two of which we’re very excited about. The first being some absolutely gorgeous portraits of this country’s future – well, one half of it’s future. The other is a humorous promotion that will grow on you and drive the message home. That’s all we’re saying about that – mostly because we’re likely to embarrass ourselves if we keep spouting Dad jokes.

Here’s a burger to satisfy your hunger in the mean time.

Homonymous Hemianopia

Location Shoots

We’ll call it HH! HH is a neurological issue often brought on by stroke, it causes a breakdown in the way the brain translates information from the eyes. We’ll let the RSB describe it in more detail, we can’t really do it justice. The RSB (Royal Society for the Blind) recently commissioned Lightly Salted to produce a couple of images for their documentation, one of which was a very involved composite task. The first 2 images are your traditional Torrens Lake/Elder Park Rotunda photos, however, we feel we’ve given them a modern feel pertinent to the assignment.

The second assignment was the HH specific one involving a van driving through a pedestrian crossing, designed to communicate how dangerous HH can be. The following is an animation showing how we created the final image from combining 2 different images for the background and foreground.

And the final image(s):

Watch out for that van!

The moral of the story? Next time you need difficult compositing work done, or have an idea that you think might be impossible..you now know who to call (us, Lightly Salted..get it?!)

Don’t forget to look both ways.
