No, those are all manipulated. Tried many variations on liquid, including baby oil. Eventually settled on actual water but the drops were each done separately.


We used an eye dropper to puddle them on a similar material and shot that. Then used the eye dropper to shoot it on the show itself with each bit shot separately.


Then in post production, pulled out the best ones and combined it into a master image and also enhanced the highlights and shadows so it had more depth and looks more *liquidy*.

The main talking point on that show was it was water proof. So idea was to show those big rain drops and how it repells water. On hydrophobic materials, water sort of beads and you get these big lush drops and also these weird beads of spray that often sort of gather back into big drops as they roll into each other.


That’s the idea / feeling I was looking to communicate with that shot.

@6Pennies honestly it was really fun for a while. Pay felt like a lot at the time, but never kept up to high above costs. But we always got VIP at the best parties, got floated the hardest to get quick strike drops (often before the drops) and had a lot of people sweating what we were doing for a good long time. Was easy to get caught up in all that when Mark Parker is dropping by your studio and every day, you're waking through Soho to work with the kicks that even the cool kids could rarely get back in those days.


In hindsight, given the chance, I wouldn't have gone that route. Rather I'd have stayed focused on my own projects, most especially 12ozProphet. But hindsight is 20/20, those were fun days (and massively stressful ones as well) and I suppose I wouldn't be who I am or be where I am, had I not gone through all of it. Would have been great if the ghost of Christmas future tapped me on the shoulder and reminded me not to lose sight of what's really important though.
