"Fizz" was created with the help of Atticus, a VERY enthusiastic yellow lab (...aren’t they all)! I found this retro-looking soda pop bottle in my travels and placed a wooden dowel inside to simulate a straw. At the very end of the dowel, we placed a small bit of peanut butter.

Atticus had his interest peaked and enjoyed licking every last bit of goodness off of the dowel while I shot away. Steve, his owner, was just out of frame - keeping his lab up on stage and catching the bottle as it inevitably 10 times.
I photographed Atticus against a deep gray hand-painted movable wall and then crafted the gray background into a banquette by dodging and burning what would ultimately be the cushions to give it shape. Final touches in post-production included replacing the dowel with a red striped straw and some actual bubbles in the bottle to give the final image some FIZZ!
