Taken at a photoshoot in Swindon this morning.
Both Jen (model) and myself had viewed a similar image online so we thought we would try and recreate it.. Neither of us knew how difficult it would be as the snakes tongue moves so quickly
Thanks for looking
Very brave lady,well done.
Brilliant image - can imagine how difficult this would be, well done
Having done a couple of shoots iwth snakes, I concur: this is VERY difficult!
Really striking - and part of me wonders if there is a way to get light into Jen's eye (and have it open) without losing the light on the snake.
And looking again, the light on the two subjects looks very different: was it a single shot, or is it two pictures joined? Not a problem - the idea is the thing, and Jen and hte snake clearly got to know each other well, from the later shot!
We wanted to keep it quite low key but really struggled to get the lighting on the snake right as it just kept moving.
This was a single shot with Jen being lit with a softbox to the front whilst the snake was lit with a snoot.. I should really put it through Photoshop to try and even the light out.
Thank you for the information.
I admire the simple act of catching the snake in the right place!
It's not so much the light levels that seem different - it looks as if the light is coming from behind and to the right of Jen, as viewed, while the snake is frontally lit. But as it's a single shot, it jsut shows that my analysis is mistaken, or I missed something about how it could be lit!
