The model wanted to try something new with this shot. She wanted to try a blend of a casual setup with just a hint of boudoir. I think I may have discovered a style that is just too much fun! Oh, and I instantly became a fan of working with big sets of stairs, we had a lot of fun making the most of this location.

A model that I came across on Instagram agreed to work with me. So we we planned and planned and came up with the results you see here. The clear sunny day proved to be magical almost in this photo. The beam of sunlight hit my subject graciously. (No flash was used in the making of this photo)


I had a lot of fun really pushing the bokeh on the 85mm for this shot. It really made the different elemental planes in the background really fun to work with, both the backdrop itself and the falling water droplets.
