When building a concept for a shoot, the most creative photographers expectedly exploit all possible techniques for the best shots. But one Japanese photographer created a dress out of water without so much as a single computer-generated pixel.
For his latest project, photographer Kappa Ryu decided to go old school and use some practical effects to create a “water dress.”
There’s a reason why using CGI has gained popularity—it’s because practical effects take time to set up. The two photos Kappa Ryu shared on his Twitter page needed over a hundred tries to capture.
Kappa Ryu said the endeavor had been a three-man effort between himself, the model Eri and his assistant Souya. As Eri jumped up, Souya splashed her with a bucket of water. Kappa Ryu then waited for the perfect moment to capture, as the water formed a dress-like silhouette, according to SoraNews24.
Kappa Ryu said, “Our success is thanks to Eri’s beautiful looks and posing, and also Souya’s professional-grade water-splashing skills.” Alfred Bayle/JB
