OMG!!! Robert Welch won our first ever-weekly Studio 3 photo competition in the FREESTYLE theme! As a freelance photographer from Renton, WA he enjoys shooting human emotion and energy. “Crazy Train” had us from the start with its vivid colors and wacky subject. Robert composed this amazing image in broad daylight at a block party. He used the smudge tool in Photoshop to produce “the somewhat metallic looking super tube to hell”. Robert’s long-term dream is to own a portrait studio and venture into the wilderness to capture fine art landscape. We think Robert rocks and we are looking forward to seeing more of his work in future competitions. Check him out at www.illuminatedphotographe.com.

We are excited to share David Bell’s recent sauce series that tends to bring the foodie out in all of us. Inspired by classic condiments and the edible items that compliment them, this series has us begging for more sauce. With David Bell’s ability to shoot food and product, this was a perfect combo. Read below to find out the inside scoop on what inspired David Bell for this shoot:
I love food, especially good food. When brainstorming the intent behind this shoot, I knew one thing, good food likes good condiments. I myself enjoy the classics, tried and true, making almost anything they are paired with even more delicious. The examples below are Big and Bold, making sure to highlight the product, reassuring the viewer the condiment is the real hero. Pairing these condiments with American favorites offered a well known visual I couldn’t be happier with. When deciding on lighting I knew it had to match the flavor of the styling, therefore deciding to use bold lighting techniques that ensure the condiments look larger than life, just like their flavor.

Studio 3 spent some time at the Habitat for Humanity Store! We had such a blast getting our hands dirty. What an awesome cause! Can’t wait to visit them again soon :)
