We’d like to introduce you to Dan Francis, an award-winning, fine-art photographer based out of Fargo, North Dakota.
Can you tell us a little bit about your “Space Traveler 2079” image?
What gear or software did you use to create this image?
Canon 6D / 70-200 L / software was Adobe Photoshop…. It was close to 100 layers at its completion.
Location: Astronaut was in the studio with a 3 light setup. One camera right and two kickers. The unknown planet background was photographed in Arizona at a PPA event. The spaceship toy was photographed with a macro lens for the background. His helmet was 100% put together in photoshop by using parts of a motorcycle helmet, textures and parts of mechanical parts. Hologram and planets in space were used with photoshop brushes.
How long have you been a KelbyOne member and what made you decide to become a member?

Dan also thought it’d be cool for you all to see a before and after image of his creation—check it out!
