The Making Of Chili Bowl Grunge

07.22.2011

About a week ago, I released Magnus' chili bowl grunge photo. I did have a comment on facebook about it being possibly setup. I thought it would be fun to go back on the night the photo was taken.

On that Thursday night dinner, chili was on the menu. Yep, I made a fresh batch and was looking forward to a chili feast with Magnus. Now, usually with chili, The Teacher and myself give him some meat, beans and a little bit of sauce on his tray. Tonight I decided to let Magnus have his own bowl. He absolutely loved it.

After I was done eating, he continued, so I brought out my camera and took a few photos.

Just some simple on-camera flash shots. I decided that it would be fun to "light the crap out" of it and see what epic shots I could get. So, I started with two speedlites on the left and right of him and a third above him pointed down. I had my gear close already, so this was no big deal to set up.

I added a forth light next to the camera and kept shooting. Trust me, Magnus knows how to make a mess with chili.

As you can see, with plenty of lights every detail is brought out. Magnus went from messy to EPIC MESSY.

The shoot really didn't take too long. Trust me we still had some Twinkees to get to.

This is the final shot I used with some extra grunge processing:

It's worth going to flickr and seeing it large. Trust me.
