    Ive been wanting to do this for a while, but im not 100% sure on what exactly I want. Basically, I want to do a plain white backdrop with bright colors using body paint.

    Ive already got the girl lined up, and we have the date set, but now that ive started to put more thought into it, im just drawing a blank. Im used to the natural settings and doing portrait shots, so im going out of my box on this one to try something creative.

    Ive google searched my heart out, but most of the crap i find is amature body painting shit for spring break in key west or wherever. Im thinking more splatter art. Ive been givin 100% freedom with whatever I want to do, and the messier, the better. But I want to make this look good. So, any suggestions?

    My website for reference: www.skyace2004.com (and the girl will be Olivia).

    fun. i just want to get out of the box and do something fun and different. I dont want to pour hours into painting a model. Actually, I would rather just open up a can of paint and just throw it at her, and then go from there.

    like any technical reality show, they don't give you much on the behind the scenes on how they took it, but its entertaining.

    umm... I did give you a real suggestion. That whole episode is about shooting body paint (well, the 1st part is food, but the same concept)

    concept wasnt mine thought, so I kinda prefer the making off pictures over the actual finished product
