Monday, Wednesday, Fancy stuff.

So I went in to the studio on Monday only to find out that there was nothing to be shot. I hung out for a little and figured out when I could come in with Trevor or Ryan and then left for the day.

Wednesday Trevor was doing an on location job at the Union League, which is a fancy club where they dress up and important people come and speak and there are Balls and all kinds of fancy stuff. We met there and went down into the construction area. The job was for the cover of their magazine, which was featuring the remodeling. We had some members come in and pose with the blueprints in one of the demolished rooms (it used to be a restaurant). It was a pretty cool experience. After we finished the cover shoot, we went upstairs into one of the fancy rooms and took some archival shots of some old dishes and glassware. There was supposed to be a sword but that never showed up. There was one dish that was shaped like a turtle that was pretty neat. Fun day.

Ps- Here are some sweet pics.

Trevor doing some test shots

This is a room. We put our stuff in here.

Here's another room with cool wallpaper.

This is Trevor, Charlie, and Dave (the client) looking at the blueprints. Notice Charlie handing Dave his Perrier. He went to get us water and came back with a six pack of Perrier and said 'the spring water wasn't cold, is sparkling ok?' Trevor laughed and asked for shrimp cocktail. Sparkling water tastes like beer with no alcohol. ew. I drank it anyways.

Blueprints... the actual real ones.

Fun fact: big globs of glue are used to hold up walls of marble. These are glue globs. They were still kind of mushy.

We documented some of the construction. Charlie carried the laptop that the camera was hooked up to.

Here's a room with a fancy chandelier.

This is me being super cool in front of that epic wallpaper. This wasn't even the best part of it but I had to take it quickly.

Trevor checking out a pic he just took on the laptop (carried by the laptop carrier, Charlie)

This is the fancy room we were in later. Chandeliers and big curtains and carpet and wood and stuff.

That is a pitcher. Trevor is checking the light.

This is what the setup looked like for the random stuff we shot.

This is the turtle! His shell is the lid! Cool huh?

This is some stemware. I thought it looked pretty.
