Thanks. One was in the plans, but... a couple of beers while cooking and a couple of friends stopped by, so no shot. I'll be making it again soon. I'll be better behaved.

Very nice textures on all vegetables, and very pleasant sharpness. This is good example how hard is to make good pictures of peppers, sometimes they just don't want to look sharp and look little bit out of focus even in your great pictures.
Best regards, Nesa.

Thank you for your comments. Yes those peppers... They required a lot of attempts at remasking the stacked images. I couldn't quite get it 100% right, but I am still happy with the result.

They are excellent, but there is no texture on them, and they are always "floating". Sharpness is great overall, very pleasant, so different from sharpened images in PP.
Best, Nesa

Having too much fun in the studio
Sep 16, 2016 20:06 |  #27

Thought some might be interested to see this 'tool' and it certainly fits the 'odd' gadget part ;-)a

It's been a summer of ice cream projects for me and another large packaging project coming over the next few weeks (28 flavors). I think ice cream is probably the most difficult product to shoot, for obvious reasons and especially when working with the manufacturers as they have a very specific way they like to see it. It's key in a packaged product line that the scoops all follow the same formula; same size scoop/skirt/texture/in​gredients, etc. for consistency across the entire line and all part of the same brand.

The texture of a good quality i.c. is called 'bark' and achieving it consistently is a tough job for the stylist. There's only a handful of truly expert 'scoopers' in the country imo and they're really incredibly talented people with a really interesting skill set....plus, it's demanding physical work scooping hard pack for an 8 hour day.

Obviously, there are some tricks to the trade. Beyond lots of freezer space, there's lots of dry ice used, special cold chests for holding scoops and an air conditioner that runs round the clock to keep the studio cool, which is tough in the dog days of summer (when I always seem to be shooting ice cream :eek:). I've often thought that it would be easier to work in a walk in freezer but that's just not practical.

One device that I first saw a long time ago in another studio is a 'cold gun'. I guess technically, mine would be 'son of a gun' as that first one I saw is long gone now. I only recently remembered the design, so I built this last week for the next project coming in. It holds dry ice pellets in the chamber and with the aid of a computer fan, blows chilled air over the scoop while it's on the set to help keep it from melting. Hoping it works like a charm like I remember :lol:

That's a beautiful bunch of roots. What are they?

Very interesting. I have always thought that ice cream in ads is usually made of mashed potatoes or other thing that don't melt.
Thank you for sharing :)

That would be a lot easier. By law though (for packaging), it needs to be real.
