Lights, Camera, Pool Table!

Jun 9, 2011

This is a pool table we set up and recovered for Kennedy Photography in Huntington Beach, CA. This eight-foot Brunswick was formerly in the owner’s home, but the room was a bit too small for the table to fit properly. Our client decided to have us relocate it to his photography studio, where it would be used mainly as a prop. My assistant started stripping the old olive felt from the rails, as I simulated different locations for the pool table to be set up. After moving the pool table frame around the studio six or seven times, we finally found the perfect location, allowing the photographer to shoot his model from any angle. This made it possible for the set up pool table to be incorporated into the saloon scene that had been designed.
