Batman Vs. Superman shoot & published work for 3/21-25

Another busy week at RedEye in Chicago. I shot 4 covers this week & a spread on c2e2. Today there was a great spread of Superman Vs. Batman content for which I shot a cover with Superman & Batman action figures having it out. Designer Sara Amato did a great job designing the cover and lending art direction on this one. To accomplish the image I held a smoke machine and threw foam pieces and sand while Sara hit the shutter for me. The strings holding up superman were photoshopped out while his laser eyes were photoshopped in. If my smoke machine hadn't set off the Tribune Tower's smoke detector I would have done the laser eyes in camera as well... cant win em all.
