These shots are not particularly new. These were created about four years ago for Virginia State Parks. The final photo of the “giant stack o’ s’mores” was printed with a die cut and looked pretty cool in all of the visitor’s centers along Virginia highways.

I stumbled upon these as I was collecting images for a saxmanphoto.com website redesign (check it out!), and thought it would be interesting to post the “behind the scenes” shot, that shows (some of) the mess that was required to produce the final piece. The marshmallows had been toasted over electric stove burners (romantic, eh?), and skewers were used to help keep it all together on set. Note the hair dryer in the lower right, which was used to get the chocolate looking nice and melty-licious.

Bonus points to anyone that correctly gets the reference in the title of this post.
