    So , I'm on 4 hours of sleep and I have a album cover to shoot today @ 5 : X.
    All the information I have gathered from her is .. The music is Alternative/Pop stuff ? Shes coming from Nashville and she wants to do something edgy in a alley way. WHAT THE FUCK ?!:ugh:

    Ideas ? Set her on fire and snap ?

    ripped up clothes, doc martins, fishnets, moosed up hair :dunno: Low saturation, high contrast for that grungy look especially if the buildings in the alley are brick.

    I was thinking about that .. I wish I wouldve known ealier .. Was thinking about some pulling some craptastic chair out in the middle of the alley and go with that ... She hasnt given me any ideas though. Considering all the questions I had asked.

    I'm seeing one of those old plaid, plastic banded aluminum lawn chairs, all bent and torn of course with some empty beer bottles or cans in front of her on the ground.

    A few but, theyre so sketch. Last time I was just shooting the building itself some cops came up and asked me what I was doing. Nice guys but, they said it had been a huge meth lab :squint:

    Thanks for those pictures .. Those do give me something to work with .

    anytime I'm struggling for creative ideas.. I always browse flickr.. there's a lot of crap to wade thru, but sometimes I'll find something that sparks my interest and it gives me a few ideas.

    Most everything posted and simply the word "edgy" just yells cliche/not creative. Break outside the box, don't try to do things you've seen before...it requires quite an imagination.

    take her to an abandoned building and beat her with a hammer. that should be pretty edgy.

    who cares? you're not going to come up with anything original anyways... so why not just give the person what they want?

    from a designer's standpoint, the "edgy" grungy look is so trendy right now.

    so get in, get out and get it done. collect the money. who gives a shit?

    Everything has been done before. It's not like you can just go out and create some new way of taking pictures or editing pictures. This shit has been around for ~150 years so I think it safe to say there wont be too many new ways to reinvent the wheel. Typical elitist argument. Why don't come up with some new way of trolling because your's is played out and getting cliche.

    well someone mentioned fire..how about make a small symbolism..you can get a pretty crappy chair and take pics of her sitting on it, then take pictures of the chair alone lit up in fire..the fire can symbolize her constant struggle to gain acceptance in a extremely hard and cutthroat market.

    Once you take the pictures you photoshop the chair on fire to the regular picture..and you have one very stunning idea

    hmm I may try this for myself, I like it.

    her xar? I presume you mean her chair

    and I believe it wouldnt be all that great setting her on fire since she won't show up as much...just me thinking.

    Actually, expanding on the flaming chair idea, in the second shot with the chair on fire you could have her doing the hairspray+lighter=flamethrower thing so it looks like she is setting herself on fire.

    That could be cool.

    I saw a wedding picture kind of like this... It was from a link someone posted here. They took a picture of the bride and then lit the dress on fire and put them together in Photoshop. It looked pretty cool.
