wolverine x4

This weekend is the Emerald City Comicon. Believe it or not, I’ve never been to a comic-con (a comic book and pop culture convention)! Hopefully that’ll change in a few days. I’m trying to decide whether or not to take Adam with me. I think I probably will- but the downside is that means I’ll have to go on a Saturday or Sunday. I’d much rather go on Friday. Oliver Fern could get in free. Should I go on Friday, stretch Oliver between his morning and afternoon nap? Nah, I think I have to take Adam.

In the spirit of the comic-con, here are a handful of different Wolverines. I’m inspired by these two pictures as an experiment but they fell far short of what I was trying to accomplish for a group portrait. I like being resourceful and cobbling together stuff around the house and I’d constructed what I thought was a really cool base- A sheet of picture glass over a metal cooling rack (think: industrial laboratory). When I manipulated my lighting a certain way, it looked like the Wolverines were in a hologram. But alas, I didn’t get a chance to actually start shooting until everybody was home tonight and the floor shaking (hundred year old house) stole some of the takes I really wanted. Dang it all! Not surprisingly, my better pictures were the ones I shot wide open and isolated more. I still have a lot to learn about shooting close-ups like this.

The figures in this portrait are from the years between 1992 and 2006.

  1. I like Wolverine’s hair, but it has to be a confident person to pull it off. Having razor sharp knives come out of your hands would certainly help. You really should just run with it, you have that certain air about you, haha! I told Adam about comic-con this morning at breakfast and he’s excited but I don’t know if I explained it perfectly well because he wants to wear his old halloween penguin costume. People would be asking him if he was some sort of penguin super hero.
