a series for Meetings & Conventions Magazine on Attendees From Hell:
It didn't take long to decide that Beelzebub should be the cover model for this one. But I really like how the interior spots turned out.
Thanks to Mayumi Hudgins for the project.
i wasn't exactly sure how i was going to pull off the flames without scorching the puppet or burning down the studio. I thought i may be able to create an effect with cutout gels. It wasn't until i started messing around with moving the gels during the exposure, that a solution surfaced.
one of the accounts was about an attendee who decided at the last minute she was Vegan and demanded the food be specifically prepared to her individual liking and when that wasn't good enough the staff ordered food for her from a local Vegan restaurant and then the food wasn't visually appealing enough for the attendee.
another account was of an attendee's wife who after consuming several glasses of wine fell out of her chair and couldn't get up. When the staff came to her aid, she became combative and refused their help.
