Figure of Style

I love looking through photography books – especially books on the history of photography.  It’s a great source of inspiration.  On a recent assignment we were shooting at a pool and just had to take a photo in honor of George Hoyningen-Huene.  His 1930 photograph of couple by a pool, titled “Divers”, has had a lot of influence on me.

My version of "Divers"

At the Pool

Had a recent photo shoot incorporating a pool, some good food and wine and “relaxation”.  At least some relaxation for those involved.  I’m kind of an antsy person so was completely comfortable moving around most of the time.   The project was to show how we incorporate a backyard pool into our everyday lives.   I had a lot of fun looking for design elements and interesting angles.
Here are some out-takes (more to come in a few days):
