Clowning Around...

I found these clowns in a large assortment of Duplo Legos that a friend gifted my daughter, Sofia. After washing them all at a laundry mat, I selected these two for a future photo project. Lego Clowns is the title of this image. 


The balloons were too small for Helium to lift, so the scene was photographed upside down, with the Clowns hanging from a surface. The main light (3' x 4' Profoto Softbox) was positioned below set, and a light with 10 degree grid was used to bring out detail in the strings and inner balloons. Retouching was done in Photoshop to add shadows, remove propping, and adjust color.

Phaeno Museum Pinball Exhibition

A few months ago, the Pacific Pinball Museum in Alameda, California, commissioned a collection of pinball imagery to promote their new international exhibit at the Phaeno Museum in Wolfsburg, Germany. 

"Flipper, Flipper, Flipper!" offers museum attendees the opportunity to explore 25 pinball machines, several custom exhibits, and original artwork. 

These are some of the images created to promote this exciting event.
