Are you having a long, stressful week? Then lets break stuff! This is not an original concept, but it’s something that I’ve never had the opportunity to shoot.
I started by sketching compositions in my awesome moleskin hipster notepad. I like to doodle out ideas first because it will help me gather my thoughts and I can make notes as to what props or special equipment I might need.
Next I went to a craft store and purchased some lightbulbs and a glass bottle that I thought might shatter in a cool manner. As you can see from the video, I did struggle getting these inexpensive pieces of glass to break. As it turns out, breaking things can be trickier than one might assume! I also had this idea of sprinkling some baby powers on the glass with a hypothesis that the power would fly everywhere and create some interesting atmosphere. When all else failed, the baby powder worked like a charm!
Here is one of my top picks from the shoot:
In the end, this was a worthy experiment and I plan on doing a reshoot in the near future. Destruction, Part 2!
