Hi Everyone. I'm relatively new here but I have a few questions. I've had a few things happen recently that has given me plenty of time to think about things to try and expierment with. It all started with me getting pnumonia. I just thought it was a bad cold so I just kept fighting it like a normal cold. Well, guess what.....the pnumonia turned into a absecced left lung and it put me in the hospitle for a bit.

Anyway, long story, short,  I'm sure plenty of you have probably been there, done this but I've been thinking of trying to recreate a few scenes/shots of a few music videos. I don't mean the video itself but just that one frame/picture of a video. I know lighting and props would be just a few of the gigantic obsticals to overcome as well as others.

My question is....has anyone already tried any of this and if so, what were some of the results (if you don't mind showing them)? I will not be able to reply to anyone tonight because I have a Dr's appt. in the morning but I will be back A.S.A.P tomorrow to read your replies and answwer questions and ask the ones I may/may not have Or you can just send me a e-mail here. Thanks in advance wink.

Well, I haven't recreated anything from a video still, but I do remember the first time I recreated something I saw in my mind. It was a simple look, but I was able to nail the lighting and coloring just as I pictured it when I had my eyes closed.

Here's the result (back in '07):

Anyway, it was essentially the same concept. Look at something (in this case imagined it), then try to manipulate lights/model/wardrobe/etc until it looks like the original. Studying a still from a video clip would probably be a little easier than recreating from the mind, since all you need to do is reverse engineer something that's already been created rather than create something that only exists in the ether.

Thanks for your reply Joey smile.
