Behind-The-Scenes: Water Splashes and Dirt & Debris Blasts!

Here's a BTS video from a really fun collaboration with Wacom Technology Corp.'s Education group. In it I show how I create water splashes and dirt & debris blasts. Hopefully it inspires kids (and adults!) to try some fun toy photography during summer break.

The small but mighty Intuos tablet I used to edit these images is incredible and offers incredible value. I began using Intuos tablets and pen tools 15 years ago, back when I was photographing portraits and weddings. For me, using the pen tool is much more intuitive when editing images or creating concepts than using a mouse. There's a reason why actual pencils, pens, and paintbrushes have the form factors they do and aren't shaped like a mouse.

Thank you to Wacom for the fun opportunity to share my process. I absolutely adore the team I work with there. Check out the Wacom line of Intuos tablets at the link below, they are absolute game changers!

And huge thanks to my friends at Boss Fight Studio for the crazy toys seen in this video. Use code WACOM10 for a limited time to get 10% of these and many other in-stock toys in the Boss Fight Shop at These include Popeye, Strawberry Shortcake, Lucha Libre, Major League Wrestling, Umbrella Academy, Fraggle Rock and many others.
