Watchung Reservation Model Session

Watchung Reservation Model Session

The goal for this shoot was to create surreal shots of my model controlling the waterways of the Watchung Reservation. The setup required a step stool and huge light source and Lew assisting with all of it. We hiked down a ravine and that gave us all a determination to make sure we created magic once we got to our location.

Model: Kelly Larsen

The setup for one of our shots. A careful balancing act with Lew steadying the step stool for Kelly. I removed everything in post using a background plate.

All of the water effects were created practically. No CGI nonsense. Good old-fashioned fun using cans of seltzer and a cookie sheet/water bottle.
