Inspired by Gabriele Viertel’s free-flowing weightless etherial images. I decided my next shoot was to be taken in a swimming pool as the model and clothing needed to be free to flow.
I needed my model to have long hair to drift with the water. The dress chosen was full length, loose and made in chiffon similar to Viertel’s
I took these photos using:
Focal length 28
There were many difficulties capturing the correct image in the pool. It was quite hard for the model to stay afloat, and I felt this affected the expressions on her face. I was conscious I needed to time when I took the photos perfectly.
On the Gothic shoot, the models make-up ran in the water. This time I made sure I used waterproof make-up.
After looking at Gabriele’s photos again she may have used an underwater camera to get the weightless effect. I also think we needed a march larger water area.
