A local bar/club commissioned artwork for their walls. The brief was quite simple: ‘splashes of liquid splashes from glasses and tumblers’.
The images were created by building a specific waterproof studio environment in order to protect equipment from water splashes, the shoot took two days to complete, editing was kept to a minimum as it was important to get the shots correct ‘in camera’. This ensures less time in post and a faster delivery to clients.
Prints were created at Spectrum photographic using high quality aluminium backing in order to stand up to the rigour of ‘bar life’, sales of gin and tonic rose by 17% after these photographs were installed; illustrating the power of a ‘simple’ photograph on consumers.
The final prints were over 2 metres tall and are on display till this day and were also used for marketing purposes on social media and posters near the venue.
