Looking at photographer Blake Little's portraits - you'd think that his subjects were encased in amber. The models, big and small, are posed like Greek statues, and they look like they're preserved for the rest of time.

But, as it turns out, Little didn't use amber... he used honey. Thousands of pounds of the sticky stuff.

And he recently joined A Martinez in the studio to talk about his new photography exhibition and book, titled "Preservation."

For an insiders look at his process this video gives a good idea of what it was like to be covered in a ton of honey:
