Rooftop Guardian by RichardKnightly Rooftop Guardian by RichardKnightly
Sixth of the series with Emma Alexa and Emily Marilyn

Theme & styling: Emma Alex and Me
Models: Emily Marilyn & Emma Alexa
Make-up & hair: Soo-Jung Park
Latex: Emma Alexa
Photo & processing: Me. And I have to say, this is the most ambitious composition I've ever done. I wanted it to be firmly in the same world as the other shots, just in the city that you can see across the water. So I had to put the water in, and the wasteland beyond, build/adapt a city and colour it just so. Even the edge of the roof was built from scratch! Phew.

Lighting info: Profoto ProHead on a Pro-8a, shooting into a 6x4 gridded softbox camera left and in front of models. Second ProHead in a 4x3 gridded softbox and slightly behind the models, camera right. Fan on floor to move the hair in that "I'm on top of a skyscraper about to swoop down on someone" kind of a way ;)

Really nice selection there! Just for curiosity, how much time did you put in that image? Keep the good work!

Thank you! And probably about 10 hours for the first one of the set... a bit less for the subsequent images :)

That's very dramatic. Great use of a backdrop, not too difficult to add shadows to this one ;) :D
