Insane Clown Case Study

The Insane Clown Posse is Detroit's own hometown harlequins. Photographer Paul Mobley teamed up with digital artist Mike Campau to put up an amazing series of photo manipulations and here you will see one of them broke down step by step.

We were on a tight schedule and wanted to capture as many shots as possible, so we decided to shoot ICP on green screen at their own studio. Then we went on to Greene's Hamburgers in Farmington Hills to shoot the diner image.
