As you all know, I am a drummer, percussionist and busker. So, I got my new VicFirth drumsticks from Gabor Dornyei, http://gabordornyei.com/. Yeah, I break a lot. I know, bad habit. Before I hit the drums, I had some new ideas, so I photographed them using gels on the Elinchrom studio lights. First, I wanted to get graphics, so I only used black plastic, and I cut a regular A4 paper into stripes.
Secondly, I wanted to emphasise the shape of the sticks and also add some cool colouring. After a few test shot, I needed to add something extra to bring the shadows alive, so I used my torch on my phone. Yeah! Long exposure. Easy, right? More explanation in the video.
