I recently had the pleasure of shooting the beautiful Canberra based model Sylph Sia. We have worked together on artistic projects on a number of occasions in the past. This time I wanted to create something with a bit of punch. I was looking for twisted and contorted poses with an almost futuristic, alienesque feel, and boy did Sylph Sia deliver... I explained what I wanted in the pose and she took it from there. It's rare to find a model who is so professional, so comfortable in front of the camera, who knows how to deliver exactly what you want, and is not to mention... stunning! If you are after a model who can perform, then please contact her for rates and availability here. I highly recommend you do.
Mary was right on the money with her makeup, and it all came together brilliantly. I'm never disappointed in that department.
I lit the scene using four lights. One small gelled softbox, a small 7" reflector, 22" beauty dish with a blue gel as the main light and a 64" white PLM umbrella for fill and to balance out the gels. I also used a star filter for the streak lens flare effect. I should also mentioned there was no liquify or over-processing. What you see is what you get. More to come soon!
