OCD SELF- PROMOTION CAMPAIGN #5: BREAKFAST

Our latest shot for our Self-Promotion Campaign with Fort Franklin.
Breakfast with Michael Indresano Photography
is a unique and precise experience.

Begins with a layout.

A few dozen eggs, to find the perfectly round yolk.

Hire a food stylist, like Travis Grandon.

 

A few instruments for cutting and shaping.

Travis to continually whip up a froth in the orange juice.

Bacon rejects, stolen by the Sparky the cat.

Meticulous placement of the eating implements.

Yes, an exacto and tweezers should do the trick.

Review the options….

 

Presto, Breakfast is served!

ART & SCIENCE

A shoot we did for these massive chromatography machines.
Chromatography you ask?

Chromatography is a physical method of separation in which
the components to be separated are distributed between two phases,
one of which is stationary (stationary phase)
while the other (the mobile phase) moves in a definite direction.
(thanks Wikipedia!)

We didn’t have to understand how to use these machines, (thankfully!)
we just needed Michael’s expertise with lighting to make them glow.

BREAKFAST IN BED… BOY IS HE DREAMING!


Hard work for the models at Indresano Studio today.

Our producer  did work hard though,
to make it look like a believable bedroom.

This bed is made of plywood on saw horses.
It only has to look comfortable!

O YA, OH YEAH!

Boston’s award winning Japanese restaurant and sushi bar.”O Ya was named #1 New Restaurant in United States
in 2008 by the New York Times,

and deemed “Transcendental” by CNN Money
among other #1 and top ten ratings.”

prepping…

 

cooking…and eating!

OCD SELF-PROMOTION CAMPAIGN #4:DINNER PARTY

Our latest shot for our Self-Promotion Campaign with Fort Franklin.

When Michael has a dinner party, every pea is in place!

A pyramid of peas is not a naturally occurring event.
Glue, paint, and cardboard…

and copywriter Phil Henson keeping it fun.

and amusement expressions with the precision peas.

 

Wouldn’t you love to dig in

now that you know about the cardboard center
(good thing for the wine to wash it down!)
