This shot was created for a John Wayne concept, with the actor Ermal Williamson, who was recreating scenes of John Wayne.
Did not need photoshop for this.
Later, some one said I could have used a sound censer to fire the flash. NOW THEY TELL ME!!!
but what I did think of was: my studio is in a complex, with a restaurant and many people walking by, and Ermal must have fired 8 blanks of in my studio. They where loud, made my ears ring, and the Police Station is only a mile away... yet no one complained or came to see what was going on. I guess it's the world we live in. Don't get involved. At the time I did not think any thing of what we where doing - only after talking to friends.
