Photography: Aston Martin Lagonda with Tomek Olszowski

Photography: Aston Martin Lagonda with Tomek Olszowski

Aston Martin Lagonda with Tomek Olszowski is a photography and retouching project shared by Recom Farmhouse and Tomek Olszowski on their Behance profiles. As they describe in the project: Cult cars don't come much less conventional than the Aston Martin Lagonda. Only 645 were ever made, and they're like no other car before or since. "The wedge-shaped body is the height of a Porsche 911 but over five metres long, with an outrageously space-age dashboard." The photography and art direction of this project is simply amazing. There's a classic noir mood, and despite the 70s appeal, it reminds me a lot of the 80s with the color palette used. "This isn’t a car so much as a mobile pop-cultural mash-up, the intersection of a dozen different ideas, many of which are at odds with each other." (Top Gear)  Project description In this shoot, a touch of seventies noir accents the car's angular forms, and we introduced it to the kind of driver which its retro-futuristic style deserves.  Photography Credits Photographer: Tomek Olszowski Retouching: Maria Luisa Calosso & Aljaž Bezjak /  Recom Farmhouse  Production: Studio Tecza Production & Piramida Film Model: Kajo Szwed Recom Farmhouse is on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter!

Donut Doubles Project

Donut Doubles Project

Donut Doubles is an awesome project that matches people faces to different donuts. There's also a really cool tutorial for 3d paralax effect that was used to create this project. Enjoy! It's that time of year again where we get to work with one of our favorite agencies, The Marlin Network, to put together a fun teaser/invite for their event at the National Restaurant Association's annual food show. It's been a blast in years past, doing Breakfast Interrupted and Breakfast Burlesque (both below). This year, we teamed up with Strange Donuts and shot portraits as Donut Doubles. Below are the images along with a motion piece we did. Can't wait for next year! There's also a little video with some motion graphics and parallax action with the photos and a tutorial of how it was done.

It's always incredible to see what designers and digital artists can do with the tools available nowadays. Photoshop has become such a powerful tool that it's possible to make some simple and clever ideas come true with precision and style. A good example is the official poster made for a jazz festival in Trondheim, Norway by Christoffer Meyer. It's a simple idea executed to perfection and that's why we were inclined to share the creative process behind it.

Bored at home with Photoshop: The Tutorial

Last week I posted "Bored at home with Photoshop™" which showed a sped up process of me retouching an image. I was pretty surprised with the results and the simplicity of the effect. With some persuasion by Fabio, I decided to create a tutorial on how I achieved that effect. So without further ado here is the tutorial: O and if you have any questions, post it in the comments.

Bored at home with Photoshop

Well it's been almost 7 months since I posted my last video on here and I have learned a lot of great techniques since then. The "A perfect lie in Adobe Photoshop" was a great start; however, I have learned that the techniques that I had used before may not actually be the proper way. Over the past 7 months I've learned a number of different methods and have experimented countless times. On numerous occasions I had to stop and take a step back and just remember the basics. I learned some pretty cool effects and I think this one is one of my favorites. So without further ado: And here is the final image:
