My last photography assignment was “wet”. It could be anything to do with wet – implied, literal, whatever. I had so many different visions but needed a model and that just wasn’t happening. I was too busy last weekend to try to find somebody available in the very short time periods that I had. If I could have found a model, I wanted to photograph a woman in the bathtub with wet hair and makeup running down her face or a woman’s body from behind with her wet hair dripping down her back. Instead, I decided to go with girls gum boots and use them as a prop. I wandered around endlessly trying to find just the shot I was looking for. After a lot of trial and error I finally got the below shot I wanted.
I had a few versions with different compositions and after getting some opinions via my facebook page poll, I went with the shot I originally liked the best and that got the overwhelming majority of votes. I think this one took the cake because of the eeriness of the shot and the endless possibilities it can imply. The picture went over really well in class – my teacher loved it and I got rave reviews (whew!).
Let me know what you think:
