This is a shot I made yesterday, at 6.30 AM, for a friend of mine who is starting with her own brand making lingerie... so I am helping her with the photos of her collection.
We went to the country, and we awaken at 5.30 because i wanted the first minutes of light with the sun very low in the horizon.

I used a 500 W flash, with a kind of softbox in front, so i can have more light in front of her than in the background, and that way have the sky darker.

A storie behind this photo:
As the flash was near a swimming pool, and in front of it was the softener i used, at the ending of the shot the wind pushed the softener, and it pushed the flash, so it falls while it was ON, in to the pool... it was a mess... i thought that it was broken and would never work again, but fortunately some hours later i dried it with a hairdryer and it worked again...

The huge copyright marks are because i am kinda tired of rips...

Thanx to all for your comments, they are really much apreciated.

Sorry, i dont want my photos to be used in a manipulation, so please dont ask me... The only photos i will give for manip will be uploaded as Stock Photos, all other submitions will not go to manipulations or other purposes. Thanx :-) (Smile)

I wish I looked like that at 6:30 in the morning:!:

Do you recall how tall that model was... coz... LOOKS like she has killer legs.. (or... sorry.. she GOT killer legs) but... because the photo is taken like... form.. "the ground" (do you know what I mean?... like... in a "low" perspective) you'll get the feeling that she is very tall... so... I was just wondering HOW tall she was... ;P

watermarks Featured By Owner Jun 7, 2004
It is simply impressive how a watermark can, not only not spoil a photo, but actually look like it is part of the composition.

For all reasons and some more, this is an immediate :+fav:

Hopefuly it will help people realize that watermarks can be a good thing :)

she has a wicked body :P
In-Apt Featured By Owner Mar 14, 2004
I am in awe as to how incredibly detached from the background she looks... looks almost impossible.

btw... the watermark is fantastic, works perfectly for the desired effect and is far from being obtrusive. It actually compliments.

You could use that idea of the watermark to put the lingerie's trademark label... ;)

excellent flash using result! [the photo, not the dip in the swimmingpool :giggle: ]

I thought about this, but since I don't have the tools, I only thought about it. You proved to me it works! Thanks!

The sky captured is really worth waking up early.

P.S. You are so lucky! How could that flash still be working!? Incredible!
P.P.S. Understand the placing of the watermark. And what the hell did bleah- said?

watermarks can be achieved by using a third party product such as DIGIMARC which is incorporated into photoshop -- the VISIBLE watermark blemishes what is an otherwise well taken photo, albeit with your comments regarding the watermark withstanding.
gee Featured By Owner Mar 12, 2003
Excellent shot.

Was considering doing something broadly similar - based on a photo of a *very* pretty girl I met outside a club at 6:30am.

At first I thought that's what it was, but excellent composition nevertheless.

Esta chica está diciendo: ponte mi lencería o no te dignes siquiera a mirarme!! :) (Smile) seguro que resulta una gran campaña. La perspectiva y la actitud de ella no dejan indiferente, y el cielo apoya con fuerza el ya de por si energico mensaje de la foto

Magnifico! Thumbs Up

A really perfect shot - i like the setting as much as the lightning! Without those extensive copyright marks it would have made it to my favourites - go on and don't think to much about those poor rippers, I like your art!!

Love the pose and lighting... for some reason it reminds me of the old b-movies ... like Attack of the 50 Foot Woman.

Very statue-esque.

you are a commercial, creative genious. i love how simple this is, and how perfectly it delivers the message.

i'm sorry that people who rip exist. its wrong :| (Blank Stare)
mjar81 Featured By Owner Mar 6, 2003
great shot! i love the angle and the colors/contrast.

although i think you're a bit paranoid about people stealing your photography.
justthorne Featured By Owner Mar 6, 2003   Photographer
Very impressive! I've found legs to be a tremendously difficult issue when shooting "from below" like this, and yet you've totally pulled it off here. To whatever extent they have a little undue dimension to them, you've made it an asset because they communicate power and self-respect on her part. She seems formidable!

The lighting is a little strange - makes her seem a bit "pasted in," esp. with that hard shadow to the left (that's actually her arm behind her). But in effect, you've accomplished the stunning visual effect of the "pasted-in look" with purely natural photography! In fact, I expect that's exactly what makes this shot a little extra-compelling!

Oh, and that sky IS fantastic - completely worth your effort to capture. It's probably nearly as stunning as she is, and that's obviously saying something, cause she's pretty damn special too!

very cool!

whats witht he watermarking have you had problems with rip offs?
