Let's Glow More Sunflowers (North Korea Light Stencil - All In Camera), Oxford

All in camera - single take. Please see images in comments!

A year ago I built a big foil-lined box for light stenciling, and I've finally gotten around to testing it out. With a hooded accomplice's much appreciated assistance/contribution (for this is a two person job) this is the first of a series I'm putting together with North Korean, Soviet and Chinese Propaganda posters.

Clearly it'd all be easier and quicker in Photoshop - see notes in comments. Doing it "properly" with flash, black card, onerous stencil creation, mid-shot refocusing, balancing levels, etc. is, however, a great challenge to take on.

Hope everyone's having a great weekend!
