What’s more fun than a Bloody Mary? How about a 17th-century Dutch Bloody Mary? Or a Vermeer-esque Sangria? Maybe a Renaissance Lime Rickey? Greg Stroube’s new series puts classic drinks into a classical setting.
The whole retouching team got their hands on this one to add that painterly look to the pieces. Because Greg shot each composition for a range of exposures, they were able to pull out the highlights and push in the shadows for the rich value you’d see in a Golden Age painting. Check out the bee and the dragonfly – these details were a callback to the personal symbols many Old Masters would tuck into their paintings.
