After a week of a great deal of production and assignments, yesterday, we had a break before we’re back on the highway. So, after a selection that would be “photo appropriate”, and a little of a struggle to obtain a huge pumpkin into the small red wagon, we headed home and the huge pumpkin was taken to the studio room.

At right is one of the ultimate images, and after the jump is a stop-action 4-minute video displaying the entire project, from begin to finish, in about 1,000 individual still images. We began the carving with one of our cut-out tools after a quick sharpie sketch. Removing the meat in the pumpkin and we were ready to shoot, with a clean white background. Grace, our 8-month old came on collection for most of about 3 minutes, with my helper Suzanne Behsudi handling the background and my partner securing Grace, I made a series of structures which I was fairly pleased with. Every in awhile once, it’s nice to have a break and just have a little fun. Please, post your comments by clicking the link below.
