We had the pleasure of making the O for The Oprah Magazine‘s October issue. It was an all day build to get everything spaced out just right and all eyes looking at camera, but the results were well worth it.
This job was maybe even more torture for our dog Lefty than a food shoot. He loves toys and spent the entire day circling the set trying to sneak off with stuffed animals.
Our supervisor for the day.
Toys on Toys on Toys!
New work in the October Texas Monthly. Out of focus grainy black and white was fun to experiment with. Much thanks to TJ Tucker for pushing us to try something different and shoot in a style not typically our own. We love the way it turned out.
How cute is this guy!!!
We fed him apples to get him to stand on set, but when we took a break to to look through images, he started crying for more apples, so we just kept shooting.
Also included in the day was a shot for a story about telemedicine.
As mentioned in the World Wildlife Fund: Food Issue post, Adam has been a beekeeper for about 2 years. Bringing a full frame into the studio has been a want of his from the beginning. This job gave him a reason to spend time making the observation/transport box.
One Sunday afternoon this past spring he pulled a frame from the hive and inserted it into the wood and plexiglass case he built. There were maybe a hundred or so bees that had stayed on the frame. After a few hours, we noticed there were more bees than we had started with in the box. He had pulled a frame packed full of brood. As time wore on more and more bees hatched. By the time we put the frame back in the hive, there were over a thousand bees in the case.
Driving around with a thousand irritable bees in your passenger seat can make the mellowest of people a little nervous.
We made a big, sticky, sweet mess for Reader’s Digest. Thank you Deb Wenof for the fun assignment!
