After viewing the negative edge shots here from the VI's I began to wonder if the shot would work from a different perspective. I came up with a location in San Marcos, Tx that would provide the negative edge effect, but reversed.
Unfortunately, the Blanco River went dry during our extended drought down here so the effect of the location is lost.
However, would the effect work in this river location. You've got the wooded area to the left from down river as one background. The sun sets behind the hills pretty much to the left as well, but you can get some decent cloud reflection if your lucky.
The dam itself is about 5.5' tall from the down river side and doesn't push that much water over the top. There is only about one spot where you really would have any trouble standing when the water is flowing heavily during a wet spell. There are several dry humps, sand bars, and rocks where you could set up lights, reflectors, etc. The dam ranges in size from 18 to 24" wide at its crest so there should be plenty of room for the model to move. Again, there isn't that much water moving over the top of it so the model's safety isn't in question.
So what do y'all think? Would the location provide a good backdrop/reverse negative edge effect or am I spitting in the wind on this?
