Know the lim­its of pho­toba shing

ImagineFX: Sci-fi & Fantasy Art magazine - - Workshops -

Pho­to­bash­ing is a pow­er­ful tool for de­sign, but I also think it’s be­gin­ning to di­lute orig­i­nal­ity in film de­sign be­cause of the na­ture of the tech­nique and its re­liance on pho­tos of ex­ist­ing de­signs. Us­ing this ap­proach saves time and the end re­sult is very pho­to­graphic (ob­vi­ously), but if you don’t know how to de­sign then you let the pho­tos do all the work and you have lit­tle in­volve­ment in the process, which can lead to lazy de­sign – or no de­sign at all. Col­lag­ing pho­tos taken off the in­ter­net should be the start of your im­age, not 95 per cent of it.
