Lebron James Spikes View of Micky Arison Portrait

Since Lebron James chose to play for the Miami Heat, views of my image of their owner, Micky Arison (aboard one of his luxury yachts, Seabourn), has skyrocketed. You just gotta love the way the internet works.

Actually my image of Micky Arison is not as it seems. The original image was of him standing abreast with two others. I was asked to photograph Micky with guests while attending an exclusive dinner party aboard his yacht (if your interested in how this came about, just ask). I merely removed the other two and placed Micky inside this lovely forward cabin.

Since none of the accoutrements of his lifestyle were present, I simply added them. This includes the Miami Heat hat, the Miami Heat basketballs and the Seabourn image on the monitor. And yes, I also added his name on the cabin wall. 

The most difficult challenge with the image is that I in my excitement, I failed to notice that the cabinet doors were open... It was a bear drawing them in and making it look natural.

I also had a bit of fun with perspective, just to see if anyone would notice. To date, no one has. Please note that the starboard (right) side of the ship, and the port side (see ocean water through the door) meet at a peculiar angle. Something is askew. Did you know why?

Micky, by the way, is a kind and affable man who, though he wore his Miami Heat Championship ring proudly, was just one of thy guys. He dined and hung with us easily and could not have been a more gracious host. No, he wasn't the easiest to photograph, but other than that, I could not have enjoyed myself more.
