The tasty art of Cory Oberndorfer
A few months back my good friend Cory asked me to come take shot shots at his studio, to use in an announcement for an open studio showing that he was having. If you’ve been around DC you’ve seen Cory’s work, and probably had your photo taken in front of it — everyone loves getting their photo taken in front of Cory’s art. The popsicle art in these photos are 5 feet tall, spray paint on canvas. Awesome. More can be seen on his website.
It was a lot of fun shooting this — setup was pretty simple, just mimic the natural light. Cory’s studio has a lot of good quality window light, just not the quantity I wanted for the shoot. So a few speedlights shooting thru umbrellas, right in front of each window — dial in the ratio that I liked, and that’s all there was to it. A natural looking setup, at the power level I wanted. Then you just give Cory a popsicle and find the angle.
