Do You Ever Think You Could Have Done More?

"The spirit's willing but the flesh is weak".


Based on the lyrics of an unsigned band from Sheffield who have recently changed their line up and are soon to play a massive gig at one of the premier venues in Sheffield; The Leadmill.


You can find their website here and check out more of the band's work;

    Wow. That is awesome. Do you want to pass on how you did it?
  • Rusty Marvin - Imagery by John 3y

    Cool work Carl, works well as a promo
  • Carl Ara 3y

    Wes Iversen Cheers mate.

    Rusty Marvin - Imagery by John Cheers Rusty. It is going to be used I believe. Along with this;

    I am More Than Just a Number. by Carl Ara

    Mark Humphreys Cheers mate. I shot them all individually against a plain background and then I shot all the shadows individually against the same wall. Once that was done, it was just a case of stitching the shadows together, overlaying the band on top and then tweaking the lighting to make it a bit brighter to add a bit of punch to it.

    Brilliantly done Carl.
  • Lynne's Images 3y

    Fantastic image Carl! The shadows are wonderful! Thanks for explaining how you did it. This wil make a great promo. Nice to see you back!
  • Susan 3y

    The concept was a beauty and works brilliantly Carl - this is why I love photography so much - making concepts visual using creativity and images captured as moments in time
  • Miss Tiggywinkle 3y

    Your creativity's showing again Carl! I love the way you casually explained how you did it, making it all seem so easy. I couldn't even imagine beginning to attempt something like this. It looks fantastic!
  • Di 3y

    love the layering of details in this... well stitched.
  • Carl Ara 3y

    Rendrag1313 Cheers Mike. Much appreciated as always.

    Lynne's Images Cheers V (I'm still going to call you V), I'm not fully back yet but I'm working towards it. I've been a bit slack with my contacts shots. TRying desperately to catch up with everything.

    Susan Exactly Sue! I think along the same lines. There's no way I could have articulated the idea as well with words. As they say, a picture paints a thousand words.

    Miss Tiggywinkle If you get someone to help you along that is a graphic designer by trade, it really is that easy Tiggs. This is one of my favourite shots to be honest. Ideas for Socrates Johnson form themselves really. I take the lyrics and come up with ideas based on them.

    Di Thank you my dear.
