Hmph!  I'm not going to look at this one until you tell us how you did the last one! 

Ok, I looked.

Luke, I am of course guessing but Michael E has model lying on their sides and he shoots from above. That is just by looking at their flexed muscles. Yes, I confess I am one of the two guys who is looking @ their calves.  :D

Lovely shot - I normally like warm, bright colours, but I really appreciate this... it looks really atmospheric.

I tend to prefer fashion photos that present the model as a real person, a sort of fashion portrait (as in this example), rather than as a sort of living mannequin. You have some other nice fashion portraits in your portfolio.

Sean, unfortunately your suggestion that I am levitating above the model is incorrect:) The models are above the ground exactly in the position as shown on each photograph. A trip to the Home Depot plumbing department and a few hours of assembly of the support cage made this possible, and, above all, the bravery of the models to participate in these flying matters.

Thanks!
I like the desaturated feel, it seems to make it more about the form rather than color.

I noticed the model's breast and hair .. and these indicate that gravity is acting downwards?

As an engineer and assistant gymnastic instructor I am interested in this...

You can achieve "zero gravity" by using a shutter-beam and trampoline, and photographing subjects in mid-air, but that would not seem to be the case here, unless the breasts and hair are taken in a separate shot.

It looks as if she is supported under her legs, buttocks or back, taking several pictures so that no part of the body looks compressed by the support... I think that in one shot she is supported under her buttocks, and in another she is supported under her legs and back?

¿Perhaps "she" is a dummy, and the supporting plumbing is inserted into the lower abdomen via an orifice between her legs? (The centre of gravity of the human body is near the pubic bone, so it would be a logical location for support).

I have been levitating young gymnasts (hands on) arm's length above my head in the "flying angel" lift seen sometimes on television on dance programs ( I have been doing this "bottoms up" but you can support ladies in positions similar to what we see here.

There is a narrow age range where I can find gymnast good enough to pose and balance, but light enough for me to lift... the theory is that I do it with bigger girls each week! Winning the confidence of the young ladies is often the hard part!

Kitchen detail. Exposed for halogens over stove, lit the cabinets, foreground. Gelled the undercabinet fluorescents a full cut of minus green.

Hi Simon,

I don't spend enough time on this forum to know whether this is normal here, but I have to say that I'm not comfortable with people downloading my photos, editing them, and then re-uploading.
I'm more than happy to hear your opinion of it, which is why I presented it, but I'd appreciate it if you'd delete your edited version. You comment is perfectly valid, and I hope you'll leave that up.

best, S
