A Lake Session with Miranda (Sherbrooke Lake, Nova Scotia)

Digital infrared original
Miranda and I have not worked together for some time, this session was planned to rectify that situation, and also to return to working with her in water, something we haven't done for even longer. The lake we worked in was unfamiliar to me, so we headed for an isolated island, and worked along the shore.

The greatest influence on the session was the evening light, which lit up the sky above the lake, and cast, low, soft highlights onto Miranda's skin.  Almost all the images were made of her emerging from the water ( as opposed to focusing on water moving over skin, which is often my focus when I work in rivers.

My favorite image of the session was one of the last made - Miranda had moved out of working in the water, and we were exploring the rocks along the shore line. A small number of water grasses were surrounding her, and I asked if Miranda could change to a pose a little lower to the water, to permit more of the evening light to shine upon the foliage. The end result is a perfect example of why I love working with infrared light.
