Bottle Collision

We recently came up with the idea of shooting two bottles at the moment of collision in mid air. Originally, the plan was to simply swing them into place via two strings hanging from the ceiling. After more thought, however, we decided that the shot would be more interesting if they were shooting head to head. Thus began the process of making two large “bottle cannons” and a containment octagon to shoot it in. When Broncolor heard what we were doing, they sent over a videographer to document the process. Here is the video of it all coming together…

Food Photography: Steak

This is a new sample I shot in studio. The hot grill effect was achieved with cool smoke and some strategically placed fire, brickettes and gels. Very little retouching was needed as this shot was captured in camera.
