I had been in contact with Tasha Reign about shooting some new content for her website. We talked about some looks that she would need as her website is for members only who would expect her to be posing nude.
One of the looks we shot are these images that feature Tasha in a wet sleeveless T-shirt. I had the T-Shirt sewn together at the bottom so that it would look like a vintage swimming suit. Tip: "When you get a new T-Shirt you will find that it will not get very wet and transparent so you have to put it in the wash more than twice so it is sort of worn lightly.” This way when it gets wet it will soak up the water and become nice and transparent when wet. This look is very sexy and is a nice way to start off with the model dressed and then getting undressed. I also had this super cool swim-cap in a bright pink color for a glam look and I think it helps with the appearance that the model is going for swim or just getting wet. The backdrop was agin something I had in my mind as a way to pull the look together. I got hold of a canvas and painted it a cream color first them taped off the lines and painted them (Light Pink) to give the impression it was an old changing swim tent in the background.
The stool in the shots was just hanging about in the studio so I painted it the cream color and stuffed it up a bit to give it the aged look which I also did to the backdrop with again a wash of cream paint adding some dark gray wash to give the appearance of age. If you want your images to stand out think about your styling of your set before you start working with your model. She or he should be looking as if they are there in real life doing what they are doing. To make it become more alive we went and put my set outside. Why? because I could use the patio that was outside were the light would be softer as it was open shade over the patio. I could also use some of the bright light that was peeking between the slates that were overhead. As the light is open shade you will need a main light this could be a silver reflector or a strobe. I used my Ring-Light so when my camera was looking directly at the model the light/strobe would also be aimed at the model! Just remember when you shoot a look like this you will need a water spray to keep the model wet and sexy making sure that you have your model put baby oil over her body for the water to stay shining on the skin. One last thing all my images here have had a Photoshop filter on them for my final look I was going for!
I used a Canon® EOS 60D with a Tamron® Lens 28-75mm set @F8. - 1/80 - 200 ISO / Focal length was 30mm & 48mm on the zoom which at X 1.6 Crop = 48mm & 76mm
