Two days into our three day shoot, Jillian Ann and I have been trying to create images different from any we have done before. It’s easy to fall back on what worked before, but we keep pushing each other. I like collaborations like that.
I love the light in my space. Yesterday was a particularly beautiful day in terms of light. Over the last year here I’ve learned how to manipulate it, push it, pull it, redirect it. But sometimes it’s just a good idea to get out of the way and let it happen. This first image is just that. I pulled the sheers in over the window to soften it a bit and just started shooting.
The second one required quite the setup. Working in water is always interesting and although I used to shoot in my bathroom at my old place, this is the first time I have done it here. It’s really quite a process to prevent reflections from the tiled walls and ceiling. I basically have to create a bit of a cave in there so there are no reflections by covering everything in black felt fabric the just absorbs light instead of reflecting it. I’ll put up a picture of the setup another time. In the meantime, enjoy the one of the images from that set.
We’re going to start shooting again in a few minutes, so I’ll talk more about what else we did and how we did it a bit later.
