'Snail Express' was created by Christophe Kiciak

Christophe says, “I had to shoot this on a rainy evening, so that the snail would come out of his shell… It took a few minutes after putting him on the skateboard, but then he wasn’t shy at all!”

Here's how he did it:

Christophe used a large softbox from above/behind, and a diffused speedlight from front/right. The skateboard was hanging on fishing lines, which were cloned out in post-production.
