This is my final themed shoot for my photographic style class. The theme is 'death.' I edited four versions, all slightly different poses and processing; this is the one I have chosen to submit.
All the images were shot on location outside a local church between 10pm and 1am. It was pissing rain and windy. Everyone and everything was drenched by the end and, although I had two assistants on hand, gear was being thrown around by the wind. At one point, a garbage truck drove by and its flashing light started firing off my flash rapidly, eventually causing them to overheat. In the end, though, I got the images I was after and everyone survived unscathed.
A big thanks to Nick and Rob for helping out and of course my model for braving the rain and cold.
