Scot requested lighting that looked as if it came from an everyday source, yet was still dramatic. He wanted his photos to have an unfinished (raw, unprocessed) look to them, and the suspense of "something about to happen". The biggest challenge for me was to catch the chair just as it passed the tipping point, and the moment the knife tip pointed directly at his face. I also shot party poppers and clumps of wet confetti at him. The shot with the cooking spray has been processed for a more commercial look, though Scot is deliberately using the images with little post-processing. Scot is the world's only known pancake juggler, thus the cooking spray.
