this is the entertaining shoot that i mentioned here. i love doing shots that takes advantage of digital equipment. for the overhead shot we set up the camera high up, then i controlled it remotely from the laptop. it did take us some time to set up and level cuz i didn't want to use a wide-lens (it sometimes make things look wonky to me), but i think it's totally worth it. and the best part? all the perfect-looking food was totally fresh, edible and very yummy thanks to rori. the models actually got some time to enjoy themselves, even with the rest of us hovering over them telling them how to eat-- "grab the shrimp! NO, not that one! the other one!"... "stop eating on left, pick up your drink NOW!"... lol. i think the only person that didn't enjoy it was my assistant zeke, because he can't stand seafood. pretty sure it was like his worst nightmare, a big table of shellfish and he couldn't get away from it.
o, i also added some behind-the-scenes of how all that fun-ness looked on the other end...
