Circus Scene

I was approached by Kirsty, a talented and fantastic Wellington model, to do something a little different.
Not sure this is what she had in mind, but glad she enjoyed herself.
This scene was one that plagued my mind for some time. I was inspired somewhat from an old painting I saw in an antique store and it simply sparked of an array of ideas for this shot.
The shot ended up being quite a complicated one in terms of lighting but we got there in the end. The characters are not composite, it was all shot together. All that is added is the ferris wheel background (a shot I took in Melbourne, Australia) and the enhanced smoke from the clowns cigarette. I'm quite proud of this one. I think it tells a real story.
