This picture is a culmination of so many efforts. Fighting with teary eyes in makeup, broken flashes, and terrible weather made this image so full of passion that I can't get over it's utter perfection.
We chose to shoot using a handheld flash (which did end up getting dropped and the battery pack breaking, thank goodness for spares!) to get the high contrast and very defined shadows to add to the image. I love that you can see the stunning definition in Kristy's legs, just how I wanted it.
It started raining very heavily, but to my complete surprise none of us were deterred. Kristy danced her heart out and got completely soaked which just added to the grungy, messy look. I'm surprised she didn't freeze to death, I was standing there holding the flash and shaking! We did a mixture of classic model poses, dancing, and contortion to really give us a versatile set.
So, there you go! Dancing in the rain is definitely a lot less glamorous than the movies make it out to be, but it does produce some damn fine images <3
