I had planned to write this post about a week ago (maybe four five weeks now?), but it had proven to be more difficult to put into words than I had thought.  I’m not the best with words.  If you knew me personally you would probably chuckle and nod your head in agreement at that statement.

After going over and over what it is I want to say, I will simply say this:  I never thought I would have so much fun working with a crew of people in the studio.  Photography can be such a lonely art form, and Kimberly inspired a collaboration that felt more like a ‘dream team’ sport.  I’m pretty sure we could conquer the world if given the chance and proper tabletop.  I’ve learned a great deal from her over the past few months, and she has inspired me to grow in directions I didn’t know I could even sprout.

Movement is happening, people.  So are shadows.  It’s a beautiful thing.

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.
