Join Bill Robbins for an in-depth discussion in this video Creating ice shards and water, part of Learning Food and Drink Photography.
For this movie, let's take a look at how you might create the look of ice…shards from wax that looks so real they will actually melt.…All the special effects products that we're going to look at can be bought from…commercial supply houses for film and theatre production, but sometimes we…come across a way to create a look for a lot less money.…Now here is our hero setup with a bottle of beer that looks like it's just been…pulled from the cooler and has some of the ice shards around the base which…have started to melt.…
So let's take a look at some of the commercial products that can make that happen.…The first thing that we're going to look at is acrylic shards.…So you can see they come in different shapes, different sizes, but these are…clear, and you can see they look very natural.…Our second product is the Poly shards, and these are a little bit different in…that we can split them and resize them.…So you might wind up using both of these in the same photo, as we did in our…little setup over here.…
