Here are my two newest creations for the track teams. For the girls I wanted to create something that could show off a bunch of them running, jumping and throwing. I decided to try something with the sole of a shoe and make it look similar to a track seen from above. I think the graphic turned out pretty strong and it turned out to be a fun concept.
For the guys track I have been wanting to try my hand at creating some tornados. The road was an image I had taken last year right after a storm and I simply warped and transformed the clouds into a funnel shape. Then replicated the tornado to create a few different ones in the background. Adding some extra mist and debris using some photoshop brushes really helped make the tornados more realistic though. The hardest part about the whole poster was taking the portraits. I had to have the guys run at me very quickly and trigger the shutter at exact moment when they reached the pre-appointed spot. Not only did I have to time it perfectly but the guys had to look good at that exact moment when they were running full speed at me which was probably even harder than timing the shutter.
