    Aaron, I always love the behind-the-scenes episodes. Thanks for sharing.
    I wondered if you used real milk for this shoot or another colored liquid. Keep up the great work!!

      Hi Barnia!

      Thank you for the kind words! We actually bought a bunch of jugs of real milk! 🙂

    Great job.
    First of all, thumbs up for the make-up artist.
    I know how difficult this is cause I have been experimenting with this subject about a year ago.
    Having a model and add the milk splashes on her back later, in Photoshop, just similar to this shot.

    Liked the video very much. would love to know what company sells the boom arm and base you used for the hair light. Much more stable-looking than mine.

      It’s actually A Calumet Super Boom. While we’re not sure you can find that specific one new anymore, there are lots out there like it 🙂

    You guys just keep getting more and more professional all the time!! Woot!
    So, who’s the dog??? 😀
    Any info on using/transforming splashes into an actual SHAPE? Like a dress or bottle or car or shoe or idunno…
    P.S. Since you use coconut oil in your hair, Aaron, does that mean at the end you had coconut milk in your hair??? huh? huh? yeah I’ll stop now.

    Amazing video of the process you and the team followed. I’ve been a faithful fan of Phlearn and have learned so much that I would’ve otherwise had such trouble with. Thanks for all you do!
