A catwoman-inspired aerial shoot with hoop / lyra teacher Clare Watkinson.
This shot is all about the shapes. Minimal but precise lighting - two stripboxes - was required to highlight them.
The pose looks very simple but it took a lot of refinement to get it looking both relaxed and strong. Turning the head to the side brings just a hint of broken symmetry for interest.
Similarly, quite some research went into styling to produce a costume which was inspired by catwoman without being a direct copy, and which conveyed just the right amount of shine & texture while still flattering the model's body shape.
Post processing was mainly confined to tidying up and extending the backdrop, with some slight contrast & toning adjustments.
