It's been a while since I wanted to do this concept. and couple weeks ago, I finally found time to plan this. Inspired from David Fincher's Fight Club film, I wanted to use that similar concept and bring the fight to my portfolio. I must say this has got the be the most planning I've done for a photo shoot. First off, I needed a crowd in the background the get hyped! Luckily, we got enough friends to join the shoot. Other thing I needed was smoke... a lot of em. I got dry ice to sit at the floor and had a fog machine for the higher areas. Next was fake blood. What's a fight without blood? I mixed red and blue food coloring with corn starch and small amount of water. Last prop used was charcoal. It is to rub it across the two fighter to give a dirty look. Anyways here's the behind the scenes shot and edited by Dan Yar:
And here's some of the final images:
Thanks to all of my friends who came out for the shoot! Really appreciate it!
