Steak & Beer

Posted by Yonatan (New York, United States) on 11 April 2012 in People & Portrait.

My exploration into smoke photography really got my creative juices flowing and I decided to try something else out that I've been thinking about for a while. I wanted to experiment with a fixed camera shot with multiple frames blended into one.

This is attempt number one. You are looking at my narrow New York City kitchen and you are actually viewing a composite of three frames. Frame 1 is the empty kitchen, and the other two frames are of me doing two different things in my kitchen (pouring a glass of homebrew off my two-tap kegerator & removing a still frozen steak from the oven).

Lighting was achieved with a single monolight positioned just to the left of the camera. Additionally, I illuminated myself pouring the beer by using a wireless speedlight positioned on the counter just behind our coffee maker.

If you enjoy my work you may visit my permanent website where you can view my photos.

Thank you for taking some time to take a look at my photographs. I hope you enjoy your stop at my blog.

I invite you all to visit frequently and leave comments and feedback. I would really appreciate constructive criticism that will help me improve. You don't need to be a photographer to help me, tell me what you like and don't like. If you have any suggestions of interesting things to shoot or fun techniques to try I'd also love to know.

Best wishes,
