I have been increasingly asked to provide high quality pictures of absinthe themes to go along with interviews of the WS. I thought, what better way to get what I need than to ask all of you photogs out there!
So, here's what I need:
a) pictures similar to the main site's section on how to prepare absinthe, in progression. They wanted to use what we already have, but they were taken ages ago and the high quality versions aren't able to be found
b ) pictures of cocktails made with absinthe. I ran into an issue with that today.
c) absinthe being served/prepared in bars. For example, here's an email I got today:
We want it to be clear that it's absinthe. And I'm thinking right now that the only way to really get that across (besides it being green) would be with the use of the spoon and sugar cube on top. Maybe a really well lit shot of a bartender pouring the drink?
However, I'd also like to see some of the bar, so not a close-up, a 3 quarter shot, I think would be best. (And since I'm being wishful: I think a hero shot would be good for this... So a low-angle shot. I like photos that give bartendersan air of authority)
Or: Not really into people being staged for a photo all smiling. So if group shots are going to be presented, I'd like them to be candid, or seemingly so. And of course, they should be drinking absinthe. And if there are any other cultural aspects that I'm missing that are indicative of drinking absinthe, I'd like to see that too!
We would need these photos by March 25th.
Thanks so much!
So, anyone who wants to throw some shots together, or who already has shots similar to this, please email them to me (with information on how you want to be credited). Shabba53 at hotmail.
I know Danny had some great shots of when he was in Manhattan, so make sure he knows about this too.
