One that makes a t-shirt attractive are the texts printed on it. And this where typography plays and important role. In my 6 years studying graphic I really can’t find the momentum to study typography – still mystified after all this time. The typeface used in the American Eagle T-shirt for me looks a bit of an Old Western style and it’s meaning puzzled me. When I looked on the web about the place, Williamburg Brooklyn’s streetscape looks like a preserved American town dating back to cowboys days. Perhaps this explains the typeface.

How I shoot this photo, at first I used the LED lights gain but then I wasn’t satisfied with the yellowish color. So I took my speedlight, attach it to the light stand, enable my Wireless Commander then fired it against the umbrella. This time I achieved what I have in my mind.

As to composition, I decided to include some of the background to make the photo look grunge.
