Floating Faces

Sometime back, I planned a shoot with Steve Kitoto for execution with Thogi (the model). The idea was to have her in water and use milk and water color. We found an old bath tub, thanks to Efi (@efi_m) that was lying around in open space so we threw some water around it to scrub it and it was ready for work. We filled it with water and the experimentation began. Ashley(@ashleenena), our make up artist got Thogi ready and soon enough she was stepping into the cold bathtub water (I don’t envy you btw, Thogi).

Shoots like these happen when it has been a while since I did a people shoot. This was one of those days. Some BTS(behind the scenes) photos first.

A bit of the setup. We gelled one speedlite with a cocktail of colors to get a nice red accent color and used another speedlite on an enormous octabank soft box for the main light.

It was a mess down there. A beautiful mess, I think.

Assembly of the octabank softbox for the shoot (by Steve and Efi). It’s huge.

And finally, for the product of the shoot. Get your coke’s and coffee and enjoy.

So thankful to all that helped make this shoot an amazing experience.

Photographers: Mutua Matheka & Steve Kitoto

Model: Thogi (follow her on Facebook)

In this great design of things you receive an A+ for effort and hard work. Exactly where you actually lost us was first on the particulars. As they say, the devil is in the details… And it could not be much more true in this article. Having said that, allow me tell you what exactly did give good results. Your writing is rather convincing and this is possibly why I am making the effort to opine. I do not really make it a regular habit of doing that. Next, while I can certainly see the jumps in reasoning you make, I am not confident of just how you appear to unite your ideas that produce the actual conclusion. For right now I will, no doubt subscribe to your point but trust in the foreseeable future you connect your facts better.
