Congratulations to friscoron for winning Feature Thread of the Week with 10 votes - View Previous Winners



So we had a bit of rain here north of Chicago and the Fox River that runs through my town has flooded. Kenzie, my dancer muse for the summer, lives next to the river. We did the C Jump at the place where boats are unloaded, and that's when I noticed that a dock/pier was only partially submerged in the river. It was like Serendipity in its finest hour. With her on the pier it was like she was walking/dancing on water.

We were shooting literally at dusk so I couldn't really shoot at a high shutter speed, esp once we got on the dock/pier. I added some off-camera lighting once she was on the pier, a pair of Yongnuo flashes.

Comments always welcome.

1. First three shots: 1/500, ISO 2000, f/2.8






2.






3.






4. 1/80, ISO 2500, f/2.8






5. I normally like to shoot this shot at a much faster shutter speed, but just didn't have the light to do that. I liked how you saw the water motion blur though, so I thought it worked out nicely. 1/160, ISO 3200, f/2.8

Really great. You did well with the lighting conditions, for a very unique fun series, with a lovely model.

Those areas are saturated, I hope your house is dry. Love all these, I'd clone out that rope cleat to complete the impression that she's walking on water.

Wow, that water level over the pier was just perfect. I looked at the pictures before reading your description of the shoot so it made the images even more magical without knowing how you did it. It's a toss up for me on #3 and #4. #4 is just so captivating. #1 and #5 are awesome and #2 certainly deserves to be in this set as well. It looks like that was a really fun shoot to do and knowing that you were racing daylight would make it even more fun.

Funny. I was editing these around 1:00 am... totally missed the rope cleat on those shots, so thanks for mentioning that. When she's doing the splits, her hands and arms are over it.

Just took a second look. If you really want to make it like walking on water, clone out the boat cleat that's visible in a couple of shots.

Ron my friend you just keep pilings it on week after week with more great images, fantastic stuff once more. I have said it many times in different ways but you really have an eye for composition that leads to many superb shots. Really like these.
