This piece is all about timing and how amazingly timed that shot was to capture the splash at almost exactly half your protrait to obscure it. The solumness of your expresion mixed with the action of the splash is brilliant. I`d be curious to find out what direction the splash was coming from. Was it headed toward your face? Was it thrown past you? Did you capture this brilliance in one take or was there a few needed to get it just perfect? Either way, its a great piece and you should be proud!
hey there thank you for having such a close look at the picture and thinking of how it was done it wasnt so easy to shoot it as it really depended on how the assistant spilled the water. most of the times the water flash didnt really look nice or he missed my head/face and we had to do it again. this picture was one of the last ones we tried and we all decided to take this one as the expression and the water looked good and i had my eyes open too haha. the assistant spilled the water from above me and tried to hit me on the hairline above the right eyebrow so it only covers half of my face! thank you very much for sharing your thoughts xx
