Nekkid In The Snow

Tonight I did a shoot with a model that was brave enough and kind enough to shed her clothes and trek into the snow with me. We both experienced some pain on this one.

The purpose was to work with the white backing of the snow against her dark skin.  I have been looking at Man Ray today and I wanted to work with some harsh lighting and some dark shadows.  Here's a sneak peek at what the project yielded.  It wasn't a total success, because I kept sinking into the snow and my subject and I were both freezing.

I shot with a Nikon D5000, using an detached Canon flash circa 1981.  It was about 13 degrees outside. We lived to tell the tale.
