    Default Pig Head, Where to get one beside market?

    Dear all,

    I am looking for a pig head for conceptual photography. May I know, if in the case I cant find any in those wet market, where can I get one?

    It is for photography purposes, not for ''Ah Long Business''...

    Thanks in advance

    I can only think of the wet market.

    if you have a butcher you always frequent, tell him to reserve one for you. ask for the innards to NOT be in it (less messy that way), unless of course the eyes/brains/etc is part of your concept.

    Do up a very realistic looking one with fake blood supply.

    After shoot finish, can rent out to ah long's customers as eco-friendly (re-useable mah!) anti-ah-long accessories!

    this happens to me frequently...

    imagine a chopping board with a big knife.. with red mashy pieces and bright red bloody watery stuff slasphed all over the place ...and the knife, bloody drips everywhere...and it is a mess...........

    yeah..that happens to me whenever i did my fruit juicing..

    beetroot! Bloody red...

    u can even drink the prop after shooting..good for health..

    Beetroot red is more like real blood. tomato sauce is not. real blood is dark red, unlike tomato sauce.

    the beetroots I get in Australia do not look anything near blood, or like real blood. it has a more purplish tinge to it. or maybe it's just the ones I've seen at the salad bars or in my burgers from Hungry Jacks.

    I do know, however, that beetroot stains are nigh on impossible to remove. so be careful with where you get them on!

    Ya, we know. Put it on your debtors' home and you take a photo. Therefore, this photograph will be used in your "Ah long" brochure for distribution, also for your 'ah long' website update right?
