Photographer Notes

No, they don't make traditional Samurai swords this small! This image was created in Photoshop by combining a photograph of a genuine Samurai sword (taken in similar lighting) with the martini in which an olive was pierced by a toothpick. The sword was edited into the image, taking care to simulate the same refraction effects of the original toothpick in the liquid. Visit this page to view the image in greater detail.

Both photos taken with Nikon D2X, Nikkor 60mm Macro, (3) SP studio strobes
