The best thing about our location trips is sitting down together in the evening and looking at what other shooting units have been up to during the day.
It's the best thing because it highlights why it is so good to get other photographers involved with the shoot- they see things in new and different, creative ways.
This set is a perfect example. I've shot bondage in a bathtub a few times before, but my shots tend to be pretty-but-conventional. I'm capable of finding novel
angles and new ways of shooting in lots of circumstances, but it simply never occurred to me to turn the narrow confines of a small black and white bathroom
from a constraint into a central feature of the shots like Faye has done here with Kate. I love the way she's framed Kate as though the bath-tub is some sort of
sci fi high tech prison or confinement cell, and how rock and roll the whole thing looks lit just be the ring-flash. I did the post-processing and decided on a
cooler look to make Kate's eyes and astonishing hair really pop. Graham did a fantastic job on the rig (and a helping hand holding the shower head for the final few
shots). Kate shows yet again why she's been one of my favourite models since before RestrainedElegance even opened, and the whole thing just looks super-slick, sexy, editorial, kinky and kick-ass. Y'all are awesome, thank you!
