I was challenged with the task of taking photos around Fort Worth and Haltom City, Texas of unique signage and turning those raw photos into art. Mopac Management, a property management company in Fort Worth hired me to take and edit photos to decorate their office building. He wanted them to be cohesive and have a common theme. For this theme, I chose a sky. There is a consistent blue sky with different clouds in the background of every photo that eludes to the personality of the piece itself.
I began by researching all of the unique places in Fort Worth and Haltom City and writing them all down along with an address and time of day that would be the best time to shoot. I would visit these locations at different times of the day in order to get the best lighting. I wanted these photos to look clean, so I edited out anything in these photos that would distract from the structure and signage. I edited these down to a beautiful sky and the main element I wanted to capture. I took out many telephone wires, cars, other buildings, etc.
The successes in this series are the grungy feel to the over all piece that have this antique and vintage vibe that will take you back in time. I wanted to show the beauty of the older designs in Fort Worth that tell a little bit of history. My client fell in love with the consistency and cohesiveness of the pieces and teh subtle shadows that give the photos depth and interest.
