"Fossil Fuel — The Extinction of Oil"

I love working on green images. I like to use my superpowers for good. This shot, entitled Fossil Fuel, predicts the death of petroleum as we move toward alternative energy sources. That, sadly, is gonna take a while. 

Right now, only ten percent of our consumption is renewable energy

I shot the environment at Lake el Mirage, a couple of hours north of Los Angeles. Then I created the dinosaur pumpjacks (yup, that’s what they’re called) in modo. The lighting for the dinos was created in modo. I like to shoot the background first, then match the CG subject lighting. It’s the easier way to go about it. It’s way harder to shoot a subject first, and then trying to get nature to match the light for you. Anyway, modo is well known for beautiful renders, so the choice of CG app was easy.
