Behind The Lens

Location
This was taken at a rental studio in Southern Germany which has a very nice water set with a good sprinkler system.
Time
It was taken about lunchtime, though the studio is completely black and lets no light it, so time there is really meaningless.
Lighting
Yes. There were two strip lights either side of the model attached to strobes that were off the floor to keep them out of the wet: these wer set back a little and there was a weak fill light in front. Behind the model was a small strobe that was to illuminate the falling water.
Equipment
For this I was using a Canon L series 24-105 zoom attached to a Canon 5Diii body plus strobes as described above.
Inspiration
My model for this, Fallon, has a wonderfully ambiguous look, with short hair and a slim build. She was in the studio to model something else, but was willing to pose in the men's underwear, although this was her first time being comparatively undressed on a photoshoot. I wanted a shot that was strong, beautiful, and graceful, as well as sexually and gender neutral, so I was playing with my ideas of poses from classical Greek sculptures: this was the shot that resulted.
Editing
Apart from a little retouching of skin blemishes, and conversion to b/w, there is very little post-processing on the image.
In my camera bag
I'm a minimalist. I carry my Canon 5Diii body and an 85mm prime lens everywhere, along wit a 24-105 zoom, a 50mm prime and often a 200mm prime. I also pack spare batteries and cards, business cards, a notebook, pens, and bug spray. That's it.
Feedback
Something similar? Well .. backlight the water! Without the backlight, the water loses its effect. How you get the water is up to you - someone wit a long reach and a watering can on a step-ladder might do the trick, though a more elaborate system will work better, probably. Don't get electric stuff in the water - that goes without saying, right? So no cables in the water; lights on stands. Oh ... and study some classical sculpture. And then you will need a model who can embody all your ideas and do it with grace, patience and intelligence.
