Last summer I was hired to shoot new beauty portraits for Nivea in Berlin. For one of the images we needed flying water splashes hitting our model. Nik Kotowski and Chris Munteanu, who were responsible for the TVC, built a machine that allows you to burst water bombs in a very precise way. The difficult part was to find the perfect timing to photograph the water explosion at exactly the right moment. Our brave model Laís got a lot of water in her face that day, but still didn’t lose her big smile. Here are my two favorite images and the finished campaign visual.
Thanks a lot to the great crew and everyone who was involved!
