even though this photo was taken in the middle of freaking winter... Haruka Nanase from Free! the Swimming Anime~ Haruka: Photography:
This is where "Costume Notes" usually go... but this time... WHAT COSTUME???
So I'll talk a bit about the shoot.
So my friends have joked about it for a while. I decided to make it happen.
I snipped up a pair of leggings and sewed some lines, pinned together a spare wig and off I went. Production cost $0...
We went to shoot at the pool in the Sports and Aquatic Centre where I work...
I don't think I have ever been as conscious about the stares I was getting from bypassers as I was in this shoot... probably because I was half naked... probably because it was a pool and we've got umbrellas and lighting gear set up everywhere... probably because it was MY WORK PLACE... oh god.
This shot in particular was done by splashing some water droplets onto a piece of perpex in front of the camera to get the sparkling water drops. Extra, extra cheesy.
In the end these photos turned out quite nice... I mean, they're just of me half naked, and I'm a little self conscious of how I look here, I hope these pictures don't scar anybody's eyes... but this was really fun.
