Summer Beauty Editorial - In January

So, what do you do in when your assignment is a Summer beauty editorial, but it's January, 20F, two feet of snow on the ground and there is no travel budget and the film has to go out that day?  Why, bring 300 pounds of sand into the studio and pour it on the floor of course!  We had no swimsuit or beach wear, so the cover up top is just a scarf.  Captured with a Sinar F 4x5 and 300mm Schneider Symar on Ektachrome 64 professional.  Lighting is a Broncolor Flashman, Pulso head and direct light from an umbrella reflector.

In retrospect, I should have used white sand, not Meramec river sand, but the picture won a couple of awards anyway.  

A Hollywood Platinum print version made in Nik Silver Efes Pro 2.
