Here is my latest try at adding water to a glamour shot. I used Photoshop CS and two layers plus clone brush and magic eraser to create this shot. All comments are welcome. The model is Liz Perkins from Houston.

Cheers,
rfs

Cute girl, but it looks like a Photoshop shot, not a water shot.

Hey, Nice work but you can do way better...There was an issue of photoshop magazine about a year ago that had a step by step technique to putting something into water, I tried it back then and it worked like a charm....I have the issue at home - if you are interested I can forward you the exact recipe.

Yes I'd be interested the recipe. I like the water effects and want to play around with it in more depth.

...the water looks more like quicksilver (mercury) which is decidedly *not* good for the model, being poisonous and all. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/ooo.gif[/img]

The other aspect of this is that having a white background is out of place here. You might want to bring in some kind of sky or other image as a background.

My thoughts...take or leave.

For some reason my initial response to you didn't make it. Probably did something wrong.

Anyway, can you tell me what reflector you used for this image? I've tried my (supposed) 'soft gold' only to blind the models. I also tried the reverse white side of the reflector but it wouldn't 'punch in' any or very little light.

The shot was done with a huge gold reflector (about 4 ft x 6 ft) bouncing back late afternoon sun. I don't remember for certain, but I think we were "feathering" the light--using the less intense edge of the reflection rather than blasting the model full strength.

When models can't handle intense light, I use the old "1,2,3 trick''--have the model close her eyes, then open them wide on the count of three (while you snap the shot).
