Claryssa 03

May 29, 2019

I have shot Claryssa quite a number of times over the years and we have created some of my fave images and in fact, she is also the girl in my B/W banner.

Claryssa is a +size model who has worked all over the world and quite extensively all over Europe.

I love shooting around water so I suggested that we do a pool shoot in my studio.

We started shooting the usual pretty swimwear image that one typically does in a pool and they were all looking great until I suggested to Claryssa to do a bit of splashing and then the shoot took a complete turn.

Claryssa started gyrating, throwing her hair around and splashing the water. The whole look took on a life of it's own. We ended up with so many dynamic shots and the typical swimwear shoot took on a much darker tone.

This was shot using 2 lights. One front left and one highlight rear left.

35mm · f/10.0 · 1/125s · ISO 200
