Floating In the Darkness

We’ve featured Réjean Brandt in the past before on the site, today he submits this amazing photograph.

“This was a fun creative that I did with a friend who is a local drag queen. I wanted a painterly look so I chose a slower shutter speed of 1/25 of a second to give a bit of motion blur. I had several people help throw up the fabric, which was just pinned and tucked into the underwear. It took quite a few tries to get the look I was happy with. For lighting, I kept it simple. I had a single strobe with a beauty dish overhead, and a reflector in front for a bit of fill. As for post-processing, I erased the assistants who were in the shot throwing up the fabric, and then I played around with curves to help give a more painterly look.” -Réjean Brandt

    What might the fabric be? I use similar techniques for maternity photos and I struggle finding the right fabric that really flows
