State Fair of Virginia • Racing Pigs

In this image for the State Fair of Virginia, the agency wanted to create an image of racing piglets running four abreast down a race track. Easier said than done. The photographer built the set and talked a reluctant pig farmer into letting him photograph four of his piglets running around the track. I composite four hero images of piglets in action into one master image, then colorized jerseys and add racing numbers. The background was desaturate and a decreased depth of field effect was applied to make the pigs really stand out. Photographer: Todd Wright Art Director: Chris Nott Agency: Siddall
