WPC – Andy Warhol’s Dinnertime

Anyone for soup?

The current Daily Post Weekly Photo Challenge theme is Dinnertime, which made me think of a series of images that I shot a number of years ago, as I had drawn inspiration from a rather iconic pop art work from the 1960s.

Chicken Noodle Soup

This can is one of a sizable series of images that I shot of a major portion of the range of soups that Campbell had for sale that year.  After studying the technique used by Andy Warhol in his iconic ‘Campbell Soup Cans’ work, I attempted to emulate the look and feel of his acrylic paintings by adjusting the lighting and ensuring that the angle, at which I pointed my lens at each soup can, matched too.

At some point in time, I will print a full set of 32 images, so that I can hang them as a single installation; I actually have a space in mind for this.

Now, open a can of Chicken Noodle Soup and feed your body and soul!  Enjoy!!

Technical Details

The images were shot using a Canon EOS 5D Mk II camera with an EF 70-200mm f/2.8L lens.  The lighting setup included 2 strobes with softboxes balanced to get a rather flat lighting feel without any harsh shadows.
