|Digital original, 8 image mean blend|
When Hailey and I first worked together, her primary interest was in modeling in water, so when we planned a second solo session, a river was an obvious choice. I've worked in this particular river since 1996, but given the nature of water, it is different every time I visit it!
It was a real pleasure to work with Hailey; a passionate artist, she has a strong body sense, and really enjoys modeling, which shows in the image. In contrast to much of my previous images of the Nude in water, for most of this session I worked with mean blends (blending multiple images of water motion) than extremely long exposures to generate the water motion. This has multiple advantages, the best of which is shorter overall exposures, which makes it easier for the model to hold a pose.
