The thought of being hidden away in the studio with boxes of Christmas Mince Pies was very appealing. I have a soft spot for this particular Christmas delicacy so it took a lot of self control to avoid eating the props. It could have been worse, I could have been shooting black forest gateau. That would be a tough gig.
However, as soon as work commences and the images start to roll in, they start to look a little less appealing as time goes on. All the handling and hot lights etc takes it’s toll on them and they are replaced with fresh copies. My only hope is I get all the shots I need before I reach the last box! Great incentive to get the shot right first time! Now where’s the port!
