Now that the dust has settled…the Easter egg to end all Easter eggs. TWD DPS BTS in three parts…Part 1, The Forest. It was a beautiful afternoon in the forest on the property of Raleigh Studios in Senoia, Georgia last June. This is where we THOUGHT we were going to be doing our WALKING DEAD group shot the next day and except for the chiggers (that’s a real thing) and the ticks (also a real thing, Eric found three on various parts of his anatomy) we were in great shape. Then Cindy showed up. Tropical Storm Cindy. And Cindy dumped rain all over the greater Atlanta area and it became a torrential downpour on our shoot day…so we were forced inside. Knowing that the rain was coming, we did all kinds of background plates of the banquet table in the forest, with and without the crew standing in, so that we could see how the daylight was falling. We measured and we analyzed and we chin stroked and we head scratched. And then we tore everything down and rebuilt it on a sound stage…Lighting by the Atlanta Rough Riders, @chrispinel, @d.j.ashley and @jacedowns. Idea by the one and only, the truly incomparable @micheleromeronyc. @ewphotodept @entertainmentweekly @amcthewalkingdead @thewalkingdead @thewalkingdeadamc #thewalkingdead @bigbaldhead @ridewithnormanreedus @Pixiereedus #normanreedus #andrewlincoln #twd100 #twd @grimcsarmy @hdthewalkingdead @thewalkingdeadnotes @walkingdeadbase @hasselblad_official @ridewithnormanreedusamc @twd_reedus_lilly @profotousa

Now that the dust has settled…the Easter egg to end all Easter eggs. TWD DPS BTS in three parts…Part 2, The Sound Stage. So…we brought the forest indoors. We bounced two heads into the muslin we hung behind the set and we bounced two heads into the 12x silk we placed over the set and we brought those two soft boxes back to add a little front fill and we had the AMAZEBALLS art department dress the front of the set to look like it was in the forest. At left is the set up for all the cover shots and the always calm, always amiable Eric Vlasic, the greatest digital tech to ever open Capture One. Behind the 4x floppy at right sits Shiva.

Now that the dust has settled…the Easter egg to end all Easter eggs. TWD DPS BTS in three parts…Part 3, The Result. Guess Who’s Coming To Dinner? While Norman spills champagne and Melissa spoon-feeds Norman and Lauren looks longingly at Danai and Andrew, Shiva is ready to pounce. Two frames, a left and a right, a forest and a studio, blended seamlessly by @amgiemariehayes, como siempre. Thank you, Tropical Storm Cindy, for pushing us out of the forest and into the trees.

PART 1: Let them eat cake! Where to begin!?! We’ll begin with the just-released cover of this week’s Entertainment Weekly, celebrating the 100th Episode of THE WALKING DEAD. Tonight’s hot white is a back-lit hot white. That’s a 12x silk at left with two umbrellas behind it. To the right, that’s an unskinned @elinchrom_ltd Octobank and an @profotusa XL umbrella (with a baffle) as fill directly behind me. On this set there were doubles, triples, singles and a 5-shot…and a thousand variations of each! And this was the EASY set! Lighting by the Atlanta Rough Riders, @chrispinel, @d.j.ashley and @jacedowns. @ewphotodept @entertainmentweekly @amcthewalkingdead @thewalkingdead @thewalkingdeadamc #thewalkingdead @bigbaldhead @ridewithnormanreedus @Pixiereedus #normanreedus #andrewlincoln #twd100
