Setting a parking lot nearly on fire, probably qualifies as “no bueno”! LOL Oh well, anything I do is always “in the name of art”. That’s my honest statement, if ever get arrested!
My friend Josh and I shoot often together for his various publicity needs. We always try to come up with something new and creative. Sometimes it’s a new prop or a cool background that requires us trespassing. On a recent shoot, he wanted to project the “bad boy” image, which is actually quite opposite of his character. Smoking, drinking, leather jacket… I had the genius idea, instead of using a lighter or a match, to roll a newspaper, and have him use that to light the cigarette. It was a shock his brows didn’t get singed! LOL
To “kick it up a notch”, I thought it’d be great to light more newspaper and have him stand over it in a parking lot. We had plenty of bottled water, or so we thought… The flames caught a hint of wind, just enough that when we tried to put it out, it was taking a bit of effort. Ran out of water, but THANKFULLY, my bottle of coke did the job!
Not going to lie…got a little nervous.
As for the photographic result?
