I have always enjoyed doing shoots that involve water, and when it is too cold to shoot with the pool outside will resort to using our bathroom. The bathroom is not all that large and so getting all of the lighting gear in place is somewhat tricky.
I have done a shoot in the past where I carefully balanced myself across the bath. Fortunately, that is no longer required, with the ability to connect the G9 to an app on the iPad, and boom the camera above the bath.
After one of my posts received a lot of attention I had three models all want to shoot in the bath.
For my shoot with Niki I raided the flowers from our camellia tree. These were very useful in creating Facebook friendly images.
For the shoot with Delaney I raided petals from a plant that grows out the back of my place like a weed.
For the third shoot with Bree I wanted to do something a little different and so we built a storyline around her in a red dress and mask. We also used candles and coloured gels to light the scene. That way it was different to the other ones I had shot.
Since these photos were taken we have completely remodelled the bathroom and I can’t wait to shoot someone else in the new setup.
