27/52 | Han Solo Working on Hyperdrive on Flickr.
52 Weeks of Star Wars is a weekly photo project starring various characters from the Star Wars franchise. This photo project is a continuation of sorts to my original series; 365 Days of Clones, specially my Cloned Photos mini-series.
Today marks the Twentieth Seventh creation in this year long adventure. As the title suggests; 52 Weeks of Star Wars, one new photo will be taken, edited and added to the running total every Sunday. The twist is that all the images will be a recreation of sorts of a previous image. Some; like today, will be a recreation from a famous image of the 20th century, while others will be movie posters or album covers. There may even be the odd recreation of a painting!
“Han Solo Working on Hyperdrive” is my recreation of Lewis Hine’s signature photo; "Power House Mechanic Working on Steam Pump", from 1920.
Some of you may be wondering why I chose to create a Cloned Photo base upon this iconic image. Typically I try to replicate my Cloned Photos as accurately as possible. This image, however, has been a little tricky for me. I have tried it a few times without success. I finally realized why it wasn’t working for me… Han doesn’t use a large wrench, he welds! Once I made this connection, it all seemed to fall in place for me. This was also the case with Han Solo’s Day Off , where I chose to position Han in his typical lean instead of having him in Bueller’s iconic lean.
