I wanted to share a little about these pics... they were shot for a variety of clients, ie. from Norm Thompson and Willamette Industries to personal ventures of my own creation.
The top three were personal, the next row was shot for Norm Thompson, the next shot of peppers and bolts were my own design and were lightly painted using a very bright flashlight, leaving the shutter open until I could paint or light each pepper and bolt in total darkness. I used high grade military night vision goggles... just kidding. I used just low light in the studio to see, a light that didn't register in the camera.
The presents were shot for a paper company and the bullets were my own. The wood shot is Willamette Industries and the chemical shot was for a chemical company.
