This photo was taken on a very windy and sunny day in a backyard pool however water and electrical don't mix!
The AC powered smoke machine was kept well away from the pool area and we managed to use the pool cleaner hose as a conduit for the smoke.
Shade was provided by a portable table shade which had to be held due to the high wind.
Background was provided by the pool cover.
Lighting was one fixed off camera strobe, gelled blue and aimed at the background where as the main fill light was an off camera strobe, bounced into a brollie attached to a monopod and held by an assistant.
All up a very assistant intensive shoot. Just remember when working around water, electronic components don't like it and humans don't like electricity!
