A skirt in Water #10, 2010
Jaclyn came down last week and we shot photos in a pool. It was something I had never attempted to do before and I don't think she had either. So in our tenth photoshoot together in 4 years, it was a new experience for us. We settled on a white corset and flowy white skirt for the shoot, and her sister Jessica did some waterproof makeup for the occasion.
In terms of post work, very little was done after deciding on this blue/green-ish selenium toning, contrast and vignetting. Most of what I did in post was deleting little annoying floaty leaves and some bottom debris.

When this next shot was viewed, one of Jaclyn's friends commented that there was a face, an extra face, in this shot. On her torso is a replica of what I thought looked like one of the Easter Island figures. No Photoshop. Just wrinkles in the fabric of the corset and the reflections and ripples in the water. Unexpectedly cool.

She was a trooper as I got her to repeat moves over and over in the water. The warp in her arm in the next shot was really cool. It's funny how water is so random and unpredictable in the results it gave us. If I was underwater, it might be different but shooting through the surface made it interesting.

A slow frog leg kick in the water towards me became almost a reflection of her arms. Crab like cool.

Before and after these shots, I photographed her around the pool, both dry and wet. They will be posted later. I have to get on some other shoots I have done edited.
Anyone interested in modeling for me, get in touch. I have limited time and funds to travel about, but we can work something out I am sure. Summer is too short here not too.
