The active life...
For Life water.
Can you believe it - this image was made from four separate shots.
The top part from my head to the top of my jeans was one image, taken the day I took Life on the downs. I loved the pic but it was far too fragmentary looking. We needed a full body shot.
The next day I shot again, I couldn't seem to get as dynamic a drinking action as the one I did previously!
I didn't plan to get a shot to add to the other, but had the idea after both shoots had already happened. I ambitiously put together the top part of me from the first shoot with a pic of my legs and the bike from the second shoot. And it seemed to work, with lots of clever manipulative twiddling.
The hand on the bike handle was taken from another image, and some windy licks of hair were taken from yet another image.
The sky is not fake though, it was quite like that on the day of the first session.
The way everything went together was quite like a dream! This is the first image (of three or four) for a commissioned series for Life water.
