Camping Hacks!

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.
