ABDA – Classes of 2011

Every year in November, we get into “Ballet” mode, and start preparing for my wife’s Dance Academy end-of-year concert.
While it usually is a very stressful time of the year, I still love it. What could be more fun than to have over a hundred ballet girls running around in my studio, laughing and having a great time. In these couple of weeks I get more high-five’s than the entire rest of the year. It’s all smiles!

Over the next few weeks, I will post a series of images, graphics and little stories about this years production called “The Silk Road“.

To start things off, like every year, I produce all the class photos. Here are a few samples…

Giorgio Armani: Acqua di Gioia

Today’s product shoot was a challenging one. The goal was to create an image of “Acqua di Gioia” by Giorgio Armani and showing off the stunning bottle. Being completely transparent requires to control the reflections, without creating a “flat” looking image. A little bit of a challenge, but isn’t this exactly the fun of product photography?
