The Zombie Walk by Moyimu The Zombie Walk by Moyimu

Hair, Make-Up, Styling & Retouching: Tai Dale

Update: Thank you for the daily deviation & for all the comments, favs & watches. Very appreciated<3

Update 2: I've been getting a lot of questions as to how this was accomplished, if it was manipulated etc.
So, here is the whats up with this image:
Almost everything was done in camera.
The only thing that was added/manipulated in Photoshop, is obviously the arm. Anything else I don't consider manipulation if it can be done in a dark room [i.e dodging & burning].
The make-up for all of the Zombies generally took about 3 or so hours- consisted of layers & layers of make-up, liquid latex, & my own concoction of fake blood.
We scouted outdoor locations [for most] of the shoots, and
solely shot at night [usually between 10.30pm and 1am]
Using a combination of lighting techniques, I mixed any available
ambient light & used [1] portable studio strobe. And the last
thing that really made the shots what they are, were the
amazing models that I chose to work with. All of them are extremely expressive, unafraid of contorting their faces, &
actually growled and zombie prowled during the shoots.
I hope this helps with any questions regarding how this image was achieved :]

It is quite a good picture , the one thing that does not look right is her clean jeans and shoes... For a Zombie that heavy damaged it is not realistic in my opinion.
Also the wounds look to * nice * it should have looke less photoshopped but messy.

Wait, what?? This is a photo? But it's been heavily touched up, right? That isn't just makeup and masks and such. It seems half photo and half Photoshop.

It's neat, though.

A lot of this was done in camera.
Really the only thing that was added/manipulated via photoshop was the bone in the arm. This was the first of the Zombie series when i started this, & to be honest, I was not sure what direction I was taking this in. The bone
was a last minute thing when I did this [you'll notice, the other Zombie images don't have any added effects like that- Any blood & gore was make-up, latex & other costume effects in the other shots.]
Thank you for your interest :]

shouldn't this be under photomanipulation then since you used photoshop? I believe photography is only untouched photographs.

There is plenty of Photography that get's touched up that is still considered photography; especially on this website.

Yes, the arm was manipulated, but the majority of the photo is genuine photography, which means it belongs with the photography.

If I posted a picture of flowers with a bug edited out would it not still be considered photography?

How interesting. How on earth did you get her face to look that way? It looks totally drawn! Maybe the model is the next Jim Carrey.

Reminds me of my last blind date. Actually, I went blind because of that date. Luckily, I kept my head because she was really into brain food.
