EW's 'Walking Dead' cover photographer reveals how to kill a zombie

How do you kill a zombie? If you were to break it down, shot-by-shot, what would it look like? Dylan Coulter photographed The Walking Dead’s Andrew Lincoln, Norman Reedus, Danai Gurira, Steven Yeun, and Lauren Cohan on July 13 in Atlanta for Entertainment Weekly. Using multiple-exposure, Coulter answered those questions.

He began by taking separate photographs at separate exposures. In post-production, he put them together, overlapping images very selectively. There, he toyed with transparency, lightness, and darkness, emphasizing and de-emphasizing layers at his discretion. Coulter’s photographs resulted in four separate covers for each character, with Yeun and Cohan sharing a cover. All appear as their respective characters. All exude energy.

“As a technique I think what it’s great for is really conveying movement and energy and a sense of motion in a still image,” Coulter said. “You can show something, point A to point B.”

Look to Reedus’ cover (pictured above) as an example. The cover features five images of Daryl. In the back right-hand corner, Daryl is crouching, low to the ground, preparing to leap. Here, the images are fairly transparent. The subsequent images, layered on top of each other, show Daryl leaping higher and higher into the air. The final image of Daryl in motion shows him front and center, arrows in hand, preparing to attack an unseen zombie. Here, he is not transparent at all. He is a fully realized, zombie-killing machine.

This Week's Cover: An inside look at season 5 of 'The Walking Dead'

Andrew Lincoln has a warning for you: All that gore and action and heartbreak and intensity we’ve seen before on The Walking Dead? Kid stuff. At least when compared to the upcoming fifth season, which is definitely not for kids. “We’re really earning our rating this season,” says Lincoln. “There are families that watch it together, but just so it’s on the record, guys—it’s a grown-up show this season.”

Entertainment Weekly has your first exclusive look at that grown-up season. We went on set and spoke with the cast and the producers to give you an in depth look at what to expect in season five. And while things may have ended last spring on a cliffhanger with Rick and Co. trapped inside of train car, exec producer Robert Kirkman promises that the action is going to come fast and furious when things pick back up Oct. 12 on AMC. “By minute two or three of our season premiere, I think the vast majority of our questions have been answered,” says Kirkman, “and five or six more have been presented, so you’re very much going to be invested, well-informed, and ready for the ride that we’re going to take you on.” READ FULL STORY

'The Walking Dead' star Norman Reedus takes EW's Pop Culture Personality Test -- VIDEO

As we head into the season 4 finale of The Walking Dead on Sunday, there’s a lot more to be resolved than possibly can be in 48 minutes (and perhaps it won’t, if you read Dalton’s Ross’s chat with creator Robert Kirkman). Still, star Norman Reedus promises there are some tricks in store, especially regarding his character Daryl Dixon’s trajectory: “It starts in one place and ends in another place — it’s a full circle of action and emotion.”

Before Reedus discussed Dead‘s zombie-shuffle to the finish, though, he sat down to take EW’s Pop Culture Personality Test, where he discussed childhood crushes, his favorite quote-worthy films, cinematic scares, and a special memento he got from Blondie frontwoman and one-time costar Debbie Harry.

'The Walking Dead': Chat live with Norman Reedus tonight at 9:00 p.m. on EW.com

Norman Reedus, the beloved actor who each week brings to life The Walking Dead’s Daryl Dixon, the most badass character on TV, will be joining us for an EW.com live chat tonight at 9 p.m. ET.  He’ll be taking your questions and adding his running commentary to the new episode “Judge, Jury, Executioner,” in which Rick ends up siding with Shane over the fate of that crippled interloper, Randall, leading Dale to fear the group is losing its humanity. It’s an explosive episode, featuring plenty of Stanley Kramer-worthy oratorical fireworks from Dale. Not to mention a particularly vivid demonstration of Daryl’s mastery of “enhanced interrogation” techniques.

'The Walking Dead': Chat live with Norman Reedus on EW.com this Sunday at 9 p.m. ET

Norman Reedus, the beloved actor who each week brings to life The Walking Dead’s Daryl Dixon, the most badass character on TV, will be joining us for an EW.com live chat this Sunday at 9 p.m. ET.  He’ll be taking your questions and adding his running commentary to the new episode “Judge, Jury, Executioner,” in which Rick ends up siding with Shane, leading Dale to fear the group is losing its humanity.

If you’re a male between the ages of 23 and 28, odds are you also had a poster of The Boondock Saints featuring Reedus hanging on your college dorm room’s wall. Though he already had a strong following because of Troy Duffy’s 1999 cult film, he’s proven to be, for many, the true breakout star of The Walking Dead. His haunted, humane, profoundly vulnerable Daryl flies in the face of the many Deliverance-style hixploitation stereotypes that continue to glut pop culture. Of course, that doesn’t mean he can’t be handy with a crossbow! In our chat he’ll talk about season 2, what the death of Sophia means for Daryl, whether romantic sparks with Carol are in Daryl’s future, and whether his relationship with terrifying older brother Merle really is as love-hate as it seems. Get your questions ready, and see you at 9 p.m. ET on Sunday.
