Last year I was on set shooting the campaign for a fragrance ad where we set a car on fire. Ever since then, I'd been itching to play with fire again, because who doesn't wanna play with some for their photography?

When I was back in Irvine in November I decided to do something about it, so together with the team we drove to Salton Sea. Mostly because I wanted an unlimited open space to work where no one will disturb us regardless of what we did, but also because I wanted fire on water (or is it water on fire?). I'm so close to actually trying this underwater, I think I may just try figure that out for next time. This was a really fun experience. :D

In other news, I'm months behind schedule for blog posts so I'll just be updating photos for now. I'll work backwards in adding behind the scenes after the project is done, if time permits. Only 4 more pieces left and it's a wrap! Can't wait for the book~

Happy new year everyone! ♥
