Experimental Shoots: Body Paint, Serendipity and Leah
We were actually capturing full length and portrait shots in this wet paint shot, but I was fascinated by the small, abstract interaction and mixing of the paints. I only had about 2 minutes to have a quick go at catching all these small surfaces.
Looking at them now, I wish I had got even closer (I suppose they could be cropped more) and also I would spend more time seaking out angles. I wasn't sure what I was going to be able to get in the heat of the moment, but I think they are really interesting.
About the Experimental Shoots Blog Posts
In this series I am focussing on different kinds of setups I've tried. Some are more successful than others. The idea is tweak your creative juices. I'm going to give a few tips as we go, but not full details - I want your experiments to be your own - you will have different ideas, equipment, setups and so on.
I am always interested in the results, and if you want to post them to me I would be very happy to put them on the blog.
