my fair lady
As part of my fundraising campaign for my Von Wong does Europe trip (www.indiegogo.com/vonwongdoeseurope) I actually put together a sample tutorial video on how I edited this shot to give it a little bit more drama!

I had the marvelous opportunity to travel to Israel just a week ago to visit Udi from DIYPhotography.net.While I was there, I met all sorts of fantastic people through the power of facebook, one of whom isAyelet Rabinovitch - a fashion photographer based out of Tel Aviv. We were introduced by Pratik, a fantastic retoucher over at Solstice Retouch.
Ayelet and I spontaneousely grabbed coffee together sometime in the first week that I was in Tel Aviv and we instantly bonded and the idea of doing a creative and ethereal photoshoot in the Dead Sea was born. She leveraged her contacts and helped put together a co-shoot in only ONE WEEK where we managed to pull together two gorgeous models together form Yuli model agency as well as makeup artist Omai Sherit!
The entire shoot was improvised… but I'm very happy with the results… the location was absolutely sublime and exquisitely beautiful. For those who haven't been at the dead sea… although all this looks fluffy and soft, the ground is hard, spiky and generally extremely painful to walk on!!
The weather was kind to us and we were blessed with a generally overcast day which allowed us to shoot at high apertures without needing to worry about overblown highlights. The only casualty of the shoot? One of my Lumopro's fell in the dead sea =[
Special thanks to assistants/photographers Yossi and Meir Pinto for coming along and bandaging my foot after I bled all over the car XD
