When Harry’s mom and I started talking about his senior photos, she asked me to incorporate Dungeons & Dragons into a photo so I asked them to bring a playing board and some dice. I set up my lighting after his cap & gown photos and with fishing line I tied to an overhead boom, I then used poster putty to attach 5 dice pieces and swing them back and forth. Then I changed the lighting to overhead and shot the dice movement again, all while Harry just held out his hand in a throwing gesture.
With 41 photos to work with, I first chose the main photo for his expression (second photo) and made my adjustments in Lightroom. After an export into Photoshop, I then spent the time finding 5 good photos of the dice to work with, so with the background and main photo, that put me at 7 photos used, in 21 layers.
Please enjoy, the Dungeon Master!
