This year’s calendar is our personal tribute and a milky parody of the heroes genre! This project was photographed over 5 intensive shooting days. As usual it was very messy, especially with different colours. Milk was coloured with pigments and food colourisers to match the concepts. The biggest challenge was to accomplish a specific shapes for the illustrations.

In terms of the Gear: We were shooting on three different cameras: Nikon D800, Phase One IQ280, Phase One IQ240 Mounted on my favourite Manfrotto tripod platform. Lighting, modifiers and other bits can be seen in the short behind the scenes video below with the full animated lighting diagram!
