    I think for me it's both the caliber of work, but also the heart behind it. Frankly I'm always smitten by the work of the Focus Lab team and Super Team - as each designer I've worked alongside are humble, about collaboration, and highly skilled.

    Yes. Hard. All the time.

    Well, Heath, this is my fav question yet asked. It could be that it's directly related at me, or your moral high role abstaining from "STD photography" - but more likely the former.

    First is concept... it needed to be simple enough to further the idea of the product, but also be unique in that it didn't step on another product photo's toes. I reach out to others for concepts, but ultimately the designer of the pin is the Creative Director of the shoot.

    Second is production of sets... props, backgrounds, colors, it's all considered. Some propers are made out of fake blood, others out of paper. Many times the concept is figured out but it takes lots of iterations on executing with with set to find a solid direction.

    Third is lighting .... light is part of the story. The angle, the modifiers - again this is iteration.

    Lastly - post production. Few of the product shots were simple edits and retouching, while others are composites.

    I've broadcasted the production of Untitled-1.ai on Twitch, if you're interested: https://www.twitch.tv/alicjacolon/v/81756054

    Rogie, Justin & Hannah, and I all have kids - 8 all together. That's a lot of poop.

    For me, with 3, I tend to only work on side gigs after they go to bed. My husband and I have a pattern on certain days we have "alone" time - pursuing individually what we are passionate about. Setting those family priorities and expectations help us more forward smoothly.

    In a collaboration like this, it's important for us to keep in mind of each other's family needs. Meaning, when it was time for me to craft the photos, the crew looked to ME to set that timeline - then they respected that decision and set it up in the grand timeline.
