I meant to do that….OK, that’s a lie. A couple of times the backlight didn’t fire. And the image became completely different.
The lighting set up was one large soft box on a boom directly in front and above the model. A gridded light behind and to camera right hitting her and the water. Without it you don’t see the water falling, only running down the front of her body.
This image could only have existed for a second. We’d been playing around shooting the water without getting her head/hair wet. Then I told her to go ahead and step into it and I would snap the picture.
