This is a composite image / photo illustration produced from eleven exposures. Overall I’m fairly satisfied with how it turned out. I had to abandon some of my original plans for the image. It took way longer to manipulate than I thought it would and I actually wish I would have shaved my arms or had a genuine bodybuilder to pose for this photo.

For the images of myself I utilized a Minolta 4000af in a 3x2ft softbox to the rear left of the topic pointed at the subject at a 45 degree angle and a Yongnuo 560ii in a 3x2ft softbox to the rear appropriate of the subject pointed at the topic at a 45 degree angle. I also employed a yn 460 ii in a 9×9 inch softbox placed to the front right of the topic pointed at the subject at a 45 degree angle.

I shot the water against a black background. I used the exact same 3x2ft soft boxes and strobes to the rear of the spray pointed at the spray at a 45degree angle and placed the 9×9 inch soft box above the spray. I shot all the photos with an industar 50-two attached to a pentax k-30.

I took all my pictures into photoshop for manipulation and processing, which essentially involved some masking, re-arranging pieces of my personal body, drawing out some shapes. A pile of burning and dodging with curves adjustments, a couple of higher pass filters and overlaying a few photos.
