The “Champagne” Project
A fun project that required precise timing with no do-overs.
“Champagne” was created from images taken for a client who serves a high-end dinner, opening a bottle of champagne with a sword. This is a difficult skill, and he cuts the top of the bottle clean off. We setup a studio session for both still photos and video. After setup, the client showed up with three bottles of champagne. There would definitely be no room for error! I caught the cork in the air on the first two of three attempts, leaving the last to be caught on video without my flash going off..
