uses post production effects on the best shots taken.
Here different filters and effects are placed on the
images to give them a new feel.
Now a final image is selected and the editing has been
completed on it. The artwork is looked at by the band
and it should with all the research fit with the song(s).
The artwork is then handed to the band to use as their
