A Helping Hand

A few weeks ago I got the privilege of helping a hand on a fun shoot. I had to chase around kids, food; oh, and a dromedary named Bert. 

The Patrol Challenge is where Boy scouts and Girl scouts all over Southern California get a list of clues and tasks they must complete in and around LA.  Scouts grow by each task they complete; although, adults are there every step of the way for guidance. 

The best part about this event is that all the items collected by the troops were being donated to Charity. As well as canned goods. By the time we were getting ready to leave the event it was an amazement to see 4 truckloads worth of canned goods going to Charity! I'm glad I can lend a hand and always help a good cause! 

Patrol Challenge 2013. Hosting Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts all over Southern California. 

Troops had a list of items that had to be found and brought back. Just like a scavenger hunt, except some items were a little challenging. (Dinosaur poop, little brother or sister) 

Kids getting creative as they had to create a Super hero and Arch enemy. Some Parents were the victims here or test subject.

Hope everyone had an eventful and fun Halloween! It's been a great month for me on this side. Tons of adventures throughout the jungle of LA and more.

Halloween is over so we gotta find something to do with our used pumpkins. Get creative with your pumpkins, I made this pumpkin chocolate chip muffin. The best part about this self project was getting the smoke/steam fresh off the chocolate chips as if it were fresh out of the oven. If you don't know yet, I've styled most of my own food shots myself and am growing at it each and everyday.

Keep me posted and let me know if you guys do anything creative with your pumpkins.  The other fun part about this shoot was the lighting, I had a packed set with intricate lighting set ups and at one point it was started to look like a carnival haunted house.  That's what you need sometimes to get specific parts of the muffin to show off like the delicious warm chocolate chips that came fresh out of the oven.
