On the Beach With Erik Fankhouser

(Photos by Per Bernal)
I have just one question: Does Erik need such a large pouched poser?

A little cooling off is needed I think and apparantly #2 agrees.

    The Story of a Scan

    I thought you might be interested in how I create some of my scans.

    First I take a picture from a magazine and scan it into my computer. Often it looks like this with lots of print, sometimes on the model's body (hey, I can put up with a lot of things but I hate it when they defile the flesh). This is Denis Sergovskiy from Reps! magazine photographed by Irvin Gelb.

    Then I find a way to fill in the background using bits and pieces from the image itself or from other scans. Sometimes I can erase some or all of the script overlaying the flesh but usually I end up cropping the image.

    Once I've taken care of the parts I don't like and filled in the background the fun part begins. I experiment with highlighting parts of the image, altering color and hue, brightness and contrast, light and shadow until I'm satisfied with the result.
