Very clean and clever, but do I see residual skewer holes in the bun halves?

Thank you. I think that hole is just a natural event in the bun. No skewers were used. I can post a BTS photo if anyone is interested.

Please do. No skewers? Then who were your assistants, Penn and Teller?

HOSTED PHOTO
please log in to view hosted photos in full size.


Single gridded softbox behind product, camera left. Wire scaffolding rigged between two light stands. Missing is a second reflector at camera right behind the wire. The biggest trick was building the layers and adjusting them without toppling the previously built layers. Once a layer was added it had to be height adjusted for perspective. The fine tuning is a test of patience as things tend to slide off.

Anyone want to try this?

Thanks for making me smile. The visual of Penn and Teller in my studio waving their hands to make things float is priceless. :D

A delicate task for sure. I can imagine all sorts of things going wrong. Juice drips from the tomato, handling bruises the lettuce, the meat refuses to curl prettily.

I went back to the final image to look for residual bits of wire. There's one segment below a curve in the ham and possibly another between onion rings.

Thanks so much for a peek behind the curtain! This is certainly beyond my current skill set..............and patience. :lol:

Damn, good eye! That's what i get for working at this late into the night. Thanks for spotting those. Got them fixed. :-D

You'd be surprised what you can do with a little effort. Don't doubt yourself. Like anything, it just takes a little practice.

Nice job and I really like the lighting. Your method reminds me of a video I watched recently where the same technique was used.

No! But I've got to give you serious props for not giving up the 5th time that Goldberg set-up collapsed! ; D

Emphasis on "current skill set and patience" haha

Thanks for the inspiration!

Darn, you found me out. ;-)a

In the past I used a different approach and thought I'd give this method a try. I have to say for some products this "scaffolding" method works nicely (if not a little patience testing) but ultimately I see it in use with a combination of other techniques. Just another tool in the toolbox.

My first attempt (four hours of trial the day before) was trying to utilize thin fishing line. My thought being it was more invisible and easier to edit out (works well in many product shots). The problems I encountered were load weight differences between each layer causing different amounts of sag. Also the "hammock" effect every time I tried to make an adjustment, which caused a chain reaction collapse. While the wire was optically thicker in comparison to fishing line (as spotted by OhLook! from my lack of diligence in editing) it was far more stable, though it did have it's shaky moments.

Thanks for looking and commenting.
