I had wanted to use smoke for a while but was unsure of the best way to combine it with an object.
When I found this bottle I thought it would work quite nicely as its compliments its translucency.
I filled the bottle and studio with smoke for one shot then lit the bottle smoke free with a mixture of
flash and painted light.
I met a young designer while at a function one night. We started talking and he told me about his
designs and collections. By the end of the conversation we had agreed to meet and discuss shooting
his latest pieces.
These are the results of the commission.
Myself and my colleague work together on certain ad jobs along with idea tests.
He had the idea of recreating miniature cityscapes out of metal blocks.
To give it more visual impact we shot from a distance and moved around to create an almost birds eye view.
These balloons were an element to a strongbow ad campaign. We needed to capture liquid as if it were
exploding out of an apple. We worked out that by filling balloons with water and strongbow cider and
then shooting them with an air rifle we would get enough elements to work with.
By using hi speed flash with a sound trigger we were able to completely freeze the explosion just as the
pellet had pierced the balloon.
