Food Frozen in Mid-Air
Photographer Michael Crichton's Flying Food series. Using professional lighting equipment and with a little help from Photoshop, he fantastically freezes food like a bologna sandwich or coffee and donuts.
"I personally couldn't imagine creating a flowing stream of mustard in CGI. It's very rewarding and a lot of fun to capture it in mid-air with a camera, but I also embrace the creative possibilities that Photoshop can bring to a photograph.""There's something liberating about throwing breakfast or a bologna sandwich across the room. For example, the flying coffee and donut shot was done by actually tipping a coffee cup onto a donut. We wanted realistic shadows, so it had to be shot on the set with real shadows. The coffee 'lick' was real, and the result of many, many tries. The thrown creamers and sugar cubes were shot separately on the same set and added in digitally later to control where we wanted them in the composition."
