a small private pool, BELGIUM
I've been asked to shoot a jewelry collection ... under water. You'll have to wait a bit longer for the final pictures and a behind-the-scenes video but here's already an in-between-the-scenes shot of Filip who was so kind to shoot the topside video.
This is all lit with flash: An Elinchrom Quadra (a little below full power) with standard reflector on the side of the pool, provides the light on Filip and doubles as a hair light for Liesbeth. An Inon underwater strobe with a CTO gel lights the model and gives the orange flare on the right side. The strobes were triggered with a rather complicated DIY setup that included 10 meters of fiber optic audio cable, a watertight box, an optical slave and pocketwizards.
