This is a publicity shot from the 7th season of the Lifetime show Army Wives. The interesting thing about the original shot was that there was only 6 people that were going to be in it, the 3 sitting, the the three standing and Catherine Bell standing on the end. Two weeks later and 100 miles from this location it was decided that Brooke Shields should be in the shot. So I shot her in front of a nondescript wall between takes at a country club. Two weeks later it was decided that Wendy Davis should be in the shot also. I shot her on white seamless paper, and the folks at A&E Studios took all there pieces and put this together. It was important to keep the lighting the same and coming from the same direction for all three shots, and to make sure that their posture would fit into the shot.

Hello world. This is my first post on my blog. I am a still photography that has been doing publicity stills of film and TV for the last 20 years. This photo is the poster, billboard and the front of the DVD box for the second season for the HBO TV series East Bound And Down. The final piece of art was created by the marketing dept. at HBO.
