2012 has started off with a BANG! I have found myself in a new ‘home’ also known to many as a studio. It’s a cozy little place. There’s a full kitchen, props galore, a coffee pot (all necessary staples to keep one sane and productive) and cocktails….lots and LOTS of cocktails.
Outside of the normal cocktail consumption on a shoot (kidding) the abundance of said alcoholic mixtures is because I am shooting a cocktail cookbook written by Mark Sexauer. It has been a crazy fun experience thus far (just a few more days in the studio before it’s a wrap), and I’ve learned a TON about angles, glassware, ingredients, my tripod, and well – cocktails.
By the time we are finished, we (Mark, Kimberly Swedelius, and myself) will have created, styled, conceptualized, and lit close to 100 aphrodisiac delights.
And yes, we do drink them afterward.
(or at least taste them.)
Here’s a little behind the scenes action that I have documented with my phone over the last few…well…months.
Kimberly working her magic…
Textures, textures, textures!
The styling table…
…and building the shot.
More sneak peeks to come!
Hope everyone is having a wonderful winter season ~
