Henry's Studio



A few notes - the lighting is just a quick setup while the final version is in the mail, along with the baseboards! The camera is just on a small lazy-susan sort of deal, but will be using the Manfrotto for the animation's moves. It's a bit dark - might try re-uploading a brighter version in the morning, but I'm off to bed!

That looks real good. I can appreciate the difficulty/skill in arranging objects so that they look like they were placed there casually/absentmindedly.

Wow I LOVE the fact that the small book is on the bottom and as the stack gets higher the items get bigger hahaha. Hilarious. The set looks so great, the hard work really shows. Too awesome!

Thanks for the posts!
Andrew - your set has definitely been an inspiration for the clutter - and yeah, definitely tricky trying to go for shot-worthy-but-not-staged look.
Aravind - the lens is a 14-40 I think on the widest setting, with a 2x crop of the camera it's like a 28mm, will be tricky to get wide shots with this thing!

Wow thanks Rich! That's the best compliment I could receive :)

Justin - yeah, can't wait for more camera moves, especially breaking in the new manfrotto 410jr!

ha tony - I know that awkward pile'll fall down while filming one day, but it's worth it! (lots and lots of mini nails and sticky wax to hold it in place me thinks)

You used the MANFROTTO for that? Awesome!

Mine is kind of collecting dust. Digital camera moves, and all. It's nice to have as an option, although I think I should get a sturdier tripod.

Actually just used a little lazy susan thing from the hardware store for that - the Manfrotto moves will be much smoother (I hope!)

(^ funny that as you work this up, I've been collaberating with someone named http://www.ryanhenryward.com/
(^ a muralist well known in these parts.
(^ all his work labeled HENRY with an oval round it

as rich johnson said: this is a set?! my internet connection allows only still frames and no smooth movement (or just partly) but the magic is still there. This is made with so much love for detail.
Just the aged wallpapers and allt he tools that lay around randomly and nothing implicates: 'this is an artists stuido' in a annyoing way (dang, my english....) - what I would like to say is: this all looks so natural, so life-like. A bit messed up, clearly, somebody is working on something there and you can nearly smell paint in there.

This is so beautiful. I'm somehow happy that I missed so much, because this way I get the full load, the full impact. Every picture itself is an amazing work of art,but to follow this all in one block is nearly a bit much. I took the liberty to bookmark many of your pictures as reference material -and to astonish others. Believe me, it always works. Everybody is like: "and this is all handmade ? how did she made this ?".

It's really a pleasure to read this blog and see all this progress. All the best for all your works.
