Photograph Information Photographer's Comments
Challenge: Scene It! (Basic Editing III)
Camera: Canon EOS-5D
Lens: Canon EF 28-135mm F/3.5-5.6 IS USM
Location: Paint shop
Date: Aug 29, 2006
Aperture: F6.3
ISO: 800
Shutter: 1/40
Galleries: Urban, Emotive
Date Uploaded: Aug 29, 2006

This is my first entry with the 5D. Bout time I got an SLR. :-)

My brother wouldn't be the model so I did. I don't blame him. :-D

Fake blood, red paint, black paint, blue paint, fake skin and water. Also put some stuff on my teeth, but it rubbed off on the front ones in this take it seems.

I am sitting on a crate so I am higher than the camera. The scene in the film is lit with flourescent lights so I did the same, one ring-bulb from above-right and a home made tin foil reflector bottom right.

The reason I chose to do Saw is because it is one of my favourite movies. It's not only a good horror film, but has a very good moral that makes your mind work.

Converted from RAW, curves, selective color, hue/sat, sharpen and resize.

.....This is my first entry with the 5D. Bout time I got an SLR. :-)

The above was posted by Joey in Aug of 2006. Less than 2 years later he was shooting the poster for a major movie using a Hasselblad. I am happy I got his autographed photoshop DVD when he was charging only $25 or so for it :-)

Nice work Joey, fun to look at.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/06/2006 12:34:38 PM
5d, 4D 1D...2 megapixel k-mart camera....I don't think it would have mattered what you used for this shot. Lighting, set-up and post processing was the key.

How you get the color/dodge/burn effect on the jeans, rag and dirt on shirt and feet in basic editing is beyond my knowledge of editing in Photoshop.

Good Job.

09/06/2006 10:18:07 AM
Congrats on the blue...

So I guess I should see "Saw" then? If it's got some moral and mental aspects. I don't find pure "horror/gore" to be that interesting. Much prefer the mental thrillers (I tend to enjoy Night M. Shaylaman's films).

  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/06/2006 10:15:54 AM
Nice job, Joey! I can't watch the movie because I'm a chicken but I knew I'd see this on the front page! Congrats on another blue.

Outstanding job Joey! Knew this would be near the top. Congrats on another blue! :-)
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/06/2006 09:31:04 AM
if the dorks never gave this 1's & 2's it may have been one of the highest scoring images on dpc. it should be, basic edit and all.

(anyone who dishes out a 1 should have their name highlighted against the vote, imo)

09/06/2006 08:23:28 AM
this is pure passion here. right down to the discoloured leg that you're gonna chop off. this has got little to do with your new camera and much to do with your creativity. congrats... nice to see you winning ribbons again.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/06/2006 07:44:23 AM
I didn't recognize you. I wondered if this would be too much for DPC; I see that it was not. I was hoping to see this on the front page, and it's a testamant to the open-mindedness of the voting crowd that it made it here, with a blue nonetheless. This is an amazing piece of work. Sincere congratulations.

LOL. I wondered about if the gross factor would prevent it from winning but I guess not. Now I will have to bookmark another page for a week. Come to think of it that's not so bad since Joey will have to see it on his front page for quite a bit longer. :P

ETA: Btw, congrats Joey.

just like the movie -

I never saw (get it, saw?) the movie, but I did see previews, and I think you have really captured it here. The flat lighting and the muted colors really make the shot.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
09/01/2006 04:32:16 PM
Dang, good effects. At least I hope that is effects and you didn't make some cut their leg off for a dpc picture . . .

09/01/2006 04:10:30 PM
Looks gruesomely real..so you`ve done a good job here.
Shudder !!!

Brilliant! Maybe a bit too gaphic for the general DPC crowd, but I love it, 10.

Great shoot. Saturation is very right. Your model is acting very good.

Ouch good imagery..
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/31/2006 10:59:28 PM
I haven't seen the movie but the photo makes me believe that you have done a good job at re-creating the scene. I like it in some kind of sick way. Well done!

Impressive!
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/31/2006 07:25:21 PM
Joey? Fantastic, cruel shot! So much pain and drama in here. The blood looks so realistic I wonder if the leg was really hurt. This one will ribbon! Don't know if it's blue because many folks here don't like controversial shots but I'll keep my fingers crossed! 10

08/30/2006 05:28:22 PM
Uhhh, ouch.
Even though I'm not a fan of Saw, this is a well done shot.
Has qualities of both a action freeze and a dramatic pose.

08/30/2006 04:26:45 PM

Didnt see the movie but from what I gather this is a good representation. Well done yet appropriately unsettling. Bumping up.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/30/2006 09:38:00 AM

Well done.

08/30/2006 02:31:35 AM
this is disturbing aka well done! colors and tone really look like the saw style, i hope the model still has their foot.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/30/2006 02:26:47 AM
I watched SAW and SAWII in the cinema... boy, it was a sick movie :p
Anyway, back to the photo - this is great modelling and prop.
The bluish edit is great. This should do pretty well.

Brilliant! Looks so real.
  Photographer found comment helpful.
08/30/2006 01:25:43 AM
nice shot. a bit gory. love the blood splatter on the saw bar. that foot needs cutting off, it looks.
nice processing, and shows how much can be done through basic. must be shot with some sort of high-end cam, like a pricey canon or something.
