Well certain products are really household names … at least in our household … Mom and I like to work in the woods … and the Live Like Water Retreat gives us our fair share of outdoor physical fun … and yes we enjoy the labor that is involved … but at the end of the day we are happy Robax and a hot bath can be had … and of course then we’re Back at it Again! So here is a series of photo’s I came up with to illustrate this concept … Enjoy! Cheers Michael
This Irish Whiskey: Uisce Beatha claims to have been discovered by monks … Irish Monks and they probably said it was the water of life … not the original water of life as that usually mean piss. Of course I could see how it could be demeaned the water of life … I am Polish after all. I was first attracted to this whiskey in terms of the bottle shape … I am funny that way. It looked like a good candidate to be photographed … and it was. Here is one example of studio shot took of this bottle … developed, cropped but not retouched. Cheers
Another one of my assignments for studio class where I had to make some sort of ad. The tea bag lady was to be for my tea promotion, but last minute I changed course and came up with this idea…The make up artist was the very talented Keltoum Nass with who I have had the pleasure of working with in the past…Thanks Kate…and my very talented studio partner / photographer Bin Han…the team makes the shoot!
For A Dawson Studio assignment we had to shoot a model and then make a composite by placing them on another background. After struggling with different background concepts I came up with this. More pictures will follow when I finish “extracting” my subject. A big thank you to Ruby Rhapsody a very talented Burlesque dancer, and of course Teny our make up artist. Thank you Bin Han, my studio partner for all your help.
Here are a couple attempts at photographing the South Korea wood fired pottery I recently imported. There are a few different pieces that I photographed at different times…no retouching…just developing…
