look at these eyes and you know how and why I contacted nadine the first time and we went shooting…
… a few weeks back I stumbled over her profile on a model page and was struck with a few ideas for her. and until now we already shot on two occasions, but we will start slowly here 🙂
I did not want a exact copy, but to refine it with a few ideas of myself. the problem though was that I used black molton cloth for the background. that turned out to be a bad idea if you want those rays to appear. it was just a few days after the shoot that I got the idea to try it with a photo paper background and the sharper edges of paper make great rays.. ah well next time. none the less the outcome of our first shot of the shooting day is to my liking!
also a nice effect I hadn’t thought of in the beginning was that the fog out of the fog machine transported the light from behind the cloth quite well to the front, so we covered most of the sides of the flashes but had a small opening on the left side. this gives her face the illumination you see.
as for nadine… she is such a great and fun person that working with her is a blast. I am really looking forward to create even more great photos with her. when you have a model, that is relaxed and openminded it makes working so much easier and from both sides it gives everyone more space for creativity. of course the photographer should not be too small minded either.
pretty cool stuff. and really worth experimenting with a bit more.
hope you enjoy this and let me assure you… you can be very excited for the coming pictures of nadine… two more shooting days ready and waiting on my hard disk already…
have a great week,
