Times Square Kiss 2018

This is one of the most iconic photographs of World War II.  I always thought it would be fun to re-shoot so we did. My friends, Leu and Stacey, helped out (and practiced alot) to get a reasonable representation of the original photgraph.

I created a reference grid from the original photo to get the center and general layout. Then I brought the new picture in over the old one with transparency set on the layer to size Leu and Stacy. And it worked! Click on any image to see a high-res version.

Assignment: This week, creative Framers, we are going to take a photograph that is inspired by another photograph. If is often by actively trying to copy something that we learn to really appreciate the effort that went into the creating the photo in the first place. It is all about the light. We have said it a million times and will probably say it again another million times. So study your chosen photo carefully and try and figure what out are the light sources. Are there any shadows? Are the shadows soft, or strong and in which direction do they fall? Study the facial expressions of the model, is she smiling with her eyes? Or are just the corners of her mouth lifted? What is the emotion that you think the photographer tried to capture? Pay attention to the background. How did the photographer use it to tell her story? You can decide if you want to try and recreate the photo 100%, just use certain elements of it, or take on your own photo, inspired by its essence.
