Check out this collaboration with prop stylist, Suzy Bichl. This was such a fun shoot. Suzy came up with all these camping hacks and propped them out. This was a challenging and fun project to shoot and light. I was super excited to use the old school overhead projector I’ve had in a closet for 20 some years. I’ve always wanted to use it for a shoot. Wasn’t sure if it would even work, but surprisingly it turned on (after a couple tries and some profanity) All the backgrounds in the shots are projections on a wall from scenes copied onto transparencies. Pretty cool. Suzy was awesome to work with and I can’t wait for the next collaboration.
This series includes four hacks: Clementine/Olive oil candles, Vanilla bug spray, Hotdog spiders, and Dryer Lint fire starters.
