Thanks for the comments guys :).

It's not CGI. But that's the look I was going for.

There are several remote flashes in each image. Photoshop was used to clean up the bleeding of some of the flashes, and curves adjustment was used to make the guitars "pop".

But honestly they are not CGI, they are basically as is direct from the camera.

All it takes is just quite a few minutes setting up flashes, gels, and the camera.

p.s. There is nothing in the images that couldn't be done with film, some "special" chemicals, your own dark room, and a few hours.

The Jem headstock shadow is _far_ too big given the distance of the headstock casting the shadow, the light source would be visible (about 10" from the guitar) in frame to cast one that large, nice work but certainly either faked or embellished.

"embellished" is the key word there.

People use to do this sort of thing with film. An old friend of mine use to call it, "making shadow puppets".
