Bloody Bones for Halloween

I wanted to haul out this shot from the Oval Vodka project for Halloween. To create the spooky look for the “Bloody Bones” cocktail, I used my son’s humidifier behind and below with a paper towel tube directing the vapor up to just behind the glass. I didn’t have ready access to dry ice and noticed how the vapor from the atomizing humidifier in his room had that same effect. The cocktail itself is very tasty and perhaps might be a fresh offering at your next Halloween party.

Independence Day

It’s been a while since I have posted, but not for a lack of shooting. I’m really looking forward to tonight’s shoot—a benefit for the Thomas Cole House in Catskill, NY under the Rip Van Winkle Bridge. Many more food shots to come and weddings too! But for now a cool drink on a hot day…
