A long time ago — in the 1990s (holy crap, 20 years ago!) — I was the co-host (with my very good pal Sean Meehan) of a radio show on KSCO/KOMY called “Brave New World: The Coliseum Of Cultural Evolution.”
Don’t forget that what’s outside the frame doesn’t matter. Particularly with tightly framed shots, and shallow depth of field.
Being an art director for no-budget shoots, I’ve had to get creative with zero money, and with zero time, more times that I like to remember. But there’s nothing like solving a problem, and seeing the result on the screen… knowing just what kind of shoestring magic is happening outside the frame.
This set of images might just inspire you to get a little creative with your framing and your atmosphere… they’re for still photographers, but no reason you can’t steal the ideas for your movie.
All right, so… much as I was late to the amazing “BoJack Horseman,” I’m a little late to the Adult Swim series “Rick and Morty.”
