Its a Wonderful Life.

Well just in time for Christmas, my brother is Directing a radio play in Red Deer Alberta at the Matchbox Theatre.  He asked me if I could do photos of the cast in the Golden Era style.  So Here is George Bailey and God I will let you decide who is who.  It was something I have never done so I referenced some people to kind of emulate the style.  One guy I really loved was George Hurrell  who seems to have shot everyone in Hollywood from the 30’s – 90’s and another source of inspiration was homegrown Yousef Karsh who hailed from Ottawa.  Doing this digital is one thing, but I could not imagine having the time to go into the darkroom and producing the images they did.  It took me 1.5 hours to photoshop this and if I was in the darkroom it probably would have taken me that long just to get the density right! Anyway  Hope you enjoy.
