Denver's Peril for Backcountry Magazine
Peril recently teamed up with Freed Motion on a fun 3D illustration piece for Backcountry magazine that included light-painting photography and paper-craft models. Here's the lowdown.
"Backcountry recently approached Peril to illustrate a two-page spread for the January edition. The story, called 'The Elegant Path,' described a backcountry skier’s morning ascent up through a snow-covered pine forest, where he mentally works through the issues of the past week, work stress, family obligations. The piece was very esoteric, and described the author’s feeling of flow as he moved through the trees, finding the path of least resistance, all stresses leaving his body as his mind became centered. I envisioned a photo illustration and thought it would be the perfect opportunity to try light-painting. Moving a light source across the camera’s frame as the shutter is held open, the light’s path is recorded in time."
