DSC 3124 Lilies
Since it’s turned cold now finally and feels like winter I thought a nice summer water image would be good. This is shot in an old man-made lake in Ohio. Those lilies are really that big. No photoshop magic involved. The water there was very shallow…about 6 inches deep. We had boat trouble because the motor sucked up mud. But lilies like muck…and when I got out of the boat to check it out before asking the model to try it, the muck came up to mid-thigh. My Teva’s are still down there. At one point I thought I was going down too. Every time I tried to lift one foot the other foot would sink deeper. But I managed to get back into the boat without dunking my D100. The model did better and found some pipes running through the muck that let her pose up high where she needed to be to make this photo work.

This is an example of how it is possible to work outdoors, even in somewhat exposed locations. This lake has houses all around it. But in the middle of the week in the middle of the day, most people are not at home. And if someone did see us, there is a natural tendency to see what you expect to see. So, from a distance this was just a woman in a tiny bikini. At any rate, no one bothered us and we were out on the lake for a long time with the model seldom having anything on. Works for me.
