Water is not necessarily an easy thing to work with. It confounds makeup, it creates reflections, it can be hard to pose in, lights become difficult to place, the model can’t hear you if her ears are under water… But when it works, there’s nothing else like it.
These are a few images from personal work that I shot during the summer. I don’t often work with gels, but I liked the effect of the subtle (and not-so-subtle) color tones on these images.
