Smoked handpans in the studio..

For this shoot with Saraz Handpans we rented a fog machine. It was very, very foggy in the studio. Taking pictures of handpans (also sometimes referred to as the hang drum) is one of my obsessions. It’s not as easy you’d think.. yes, it’s a shiny, and round metallic object. But the real challenge is in making it look interesting, and adding some dimension. Luckily, I had the best model I could hope for (Josh Rivera), who also happens to be one of the finest percussionists I know in town. Thanks to Marie for smoothly operating the smoke for us. 🙂
