Well,......I'm not the expert on this one, that's for sure,...so,...if anyone else can add.. (Andy P. for example [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img] ) go right ahead..
Well,...the other day, I was in a hotel room's shower shooting a model...(first & last time)....and with the limited space, I had to use just one light.. "barebulb" reflecting off the corner of the wall.. I hard wired the connection, because it was to "foggy" in there, even with the fan on with warm; not hot water running,..which created all kinds of condensation because my lenses were cooler than the room.. so I had to step out after every other picture..
As far as working in the studio,.....I couldn't tell you,... I have never done that.. It's a liability that my insurance co. doesn't want to ensure me for.. My studio isn't big enough to accomodate a pool.. and with all the stands, cords, and other "tripable" things around, I could easily see why.. I did see a good behind the scenes video of the Ironman swimsuit video...(tame / lame/ PG) but they did show a really nice set where they show with a model/s in a pool,...with a large painted background to look like a beach..and had water pouring on a model via an assistant holding a flower waterer thingy up over her from a ladder..
One problem I have in my studio / building, is that I have a very old eletrical system.. (no ground)...which makes for some horrible TV signal, hence my reason for not watching TV... I have seen a demo of this in a video, where a guy stood in a bucket of water, and dropped in an appliance..like a hair drier...or something like that,..and it didn't fry him... well,....if you are going to attempt to shoot water stuff,...for your sake and the model's safety,...I'd check to see what you can do with an electrician to be sure everything will be o.k. even IF something were to happen..
Also,... use heavy duty stands, and counter ballance weights / sand bags on the bottom of your stand, (which are on raised rubber mats)...to help keep them from tipping over because those stand legs make for good "trippers".. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img]
Again,...I stress checking with your business insurance...which your policy should have a $2,000,00.00 umbrella policy for major mamajama claims..
I'm sure others can add to this discussion too, now that I broke the ice.. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]
