Study in water droplets
This is a study in water droplets on flesh.
Obviously the main concern is safety - mains-powered strobes and water do not mix. The strobes were positioned far enough away that if they fell they could not reach the water. They were also weighted down. They are also of course on full RCD trips.
The principal light is the honeycombed strobe on the left, the softbox on the right provides a little fill at a very low level.
Twisting the model within the light gives entirely different lighting and modelling across the body. Notice how the water droplets provide both a sparkle and a shadow.
The crispness of the water with the softness in flesh is a lovely contrast in textures.
