I have shot Claryssa quite a number of times over the years and we have created some of my fave images and in fact, she is also the girl in my B/W banner.
Claryssa is a +size model who has worked all over the world and quite extensively all over Europe.
I love shooting around water so I suggested that we do a pool shoot in my studio.
We started shooting the usual pretty swimwear image that one typically does in a pool and they were all looking great until I suggested to Claryssa to do a bit of splashing and then the shoot took a complete turn.
Claryssa started gyrating, throwing her hair around and splashing the water. The whole look took on a life of it's own. We ended up with so many dynamic shots and the typical swimwear shoot took on a much darker tone.
This was shot using 2 lights. One front left and one highlight rear left.
