It just started off as an idea while thinking about what to shoot next. And as he’s been working hard at the gym the last few months, and is a big fan of Wolverine, it hit him. Sometimes, you just get a desire to do something, and then you have to go and do it. And that’s how photographer Rahim Mastafa felt about this Logan themed photo shoot with his daughter. Rahim posted a behind the scenes video of the shoot to YouTube, but after we saw him post images to Facebook reccently, we got in touch to find out more.
For anybody who’s seen the movie, Logan, there’s one scene that sticks out. If you haven’t seen the movie, then you may not want to keep reading (unless you’re not interested in seeing it but want to know the effect anyway). The scene is set in a Vegas hotel. Charles kinda loses it and Logan, quite literally, claws his way back to the room to save him.
The folks at Film Riot explore three ways to create this and similar effects. The first uses the same technique as in the movie itself. The other two, are slightly less conventional, and involve a back massager and an iPhone. Don’t laugh, that one is probably the best looking effect of the three.
We’ve seen plenty of cases where people endangered or lost their own lives for a selfie, but in this case it could have ended in a tragedy of massive proportions.
An employee at Boston’s Logan International Airport climbed the wing of a Boeing 737 for a selfie, leading to the airplane being temporarily taken out of service.
