Recently we had the opportunity to work with the Spring Theatre, located right here in downtown Winston-Salem, on their promotional imagery for their production of The Secret Garden. The marketing director, who also happens to be an incredible designer at www.carrieleighdickey.com, approached me about photographing their lead (Mary Lennox) in a manner for which she could be then superimposed on a digital background they had purchased.
After examining the lighting in the original photograph of the desired backdrop, I decided I could replicate the light.
We had our session and I sent the final 6 choices to Carrie, who then presented the photographs to the producers. Carrie then edited the photograph of little Mary Lennox onto the digital background.
Watch the video below to see how we mimicked the look and what the final poster looks like.
