    I'm completely at a loss. I have a guy who wants shots done for his CD. It's a hip-hop/rap CD, and he wants the shot to convey "Rich Boy, Poor Man" I can't for the life of me think of how to convey this... I had a couple of ideas, but I think they're to involved, and difficult to pull off with what I have to work with....

    any ideas?

    Thats pretty vague. Try and get a copy of his lyrics so you can get a better picture of what he means by "rich boy, poor man"

    I've got one of his songs... but it really doesn't have anything to do with his theme... maybe it's slang for something and my honkey ass just doesn't understand :mamoru:

    he wants to have his kid in teh shot... so I thought of having him dressed up like a baller, tossin a wad of dough towards his dad who would be "dressed in rags" Or trying to come up with some kind of scenario where there's a "rich/poor" relationship

    probably going to shoot this in an urban setting downtown....

    Shoot his kid with some bling on, sitting in the foreground of an alley, light him so that he shines. Put the old man in the background in the shadows, kinda slumped, dressed in greys and blacks.

    Or maybe don't think in terms of wealth or money. :dunno:

    Maybe "boy" doesn't necessarily mean child... maybe it means he's a financially rich human male, but poor as a "man", like integrity or strength :dunno:

    would emotionally rich vs. poor. a little kid with family looking fulfilled, while your rapper has money women but is emotionally bankrupt and longing for what he had as a child.

    or maybe put the old man on a porch in a chair or have him stand on the steps looking towards the camera and have the rapper walking away from the house/porch with this bling and son.......ehh i don't know if that will be interpreted correctly or not.

    Or you can work with expression of the old man as being satisfied and the rich boy with his bling looking as if hes missing something the old man has.

    OR have both the old man and the rich boy's back to each other and blend them in..as if they were merging together or seperating from each other...have the rapper hold his son as if they were walking away.

    i'm all out and good luck

    What about two exposures of the same scene, one with him looking proud and in rags, and one with him looking depressed and wealthy.

    Maybe even make the two images of the guy interacting with each other.

    im going to give you the idea I didnt use for a rap artist cd cover..I was pissed off cause they didnt approve the idea.

    first look for a possible abandoned house full of graffiti..so it looks real rundown and shitty, then put the nicest pieces of furniture on that house, and have the artist sitting on the whitest couch possible with the nicest lamps and all that..make sure you can see the walls fucked up and the grafiti all over.

    the idea is that this is this guy who just made it and is still living in his old place...

    Rich boy as in material possessions, yet poor man in family & friends.

    Sounds like someone who has all the toys & money they want, but not the friends & family they had.

    The picture I get is with a baller dude sitting on the hood of a fancy car at the side of a street with some bitches around him. At the same time he is looking over his shoulder and sees a young boy with a big smile on his face riding by on his bike.
