After watching Ariana Grande’s “God is a Woman” video, I felt inspired to do my own photo shoot involving a pool full of paint. With this being my first attempt at shooting something like this, there was a huge learning curve during the process of making this shoot happen.

These are the things I learned for my next attempt at the pool full of paint:

1. I believe oil based paint would work better for this shoot. The paint was blending into the water too much for my liking. The oil based paint will help to create more of a separation between the paint and the water, which I would have preferred and would have loved to see.


2. The paint that we used on the model dried out fast. It started cracking and peeling on her skin - especially when she was submerged in water. This may have gone better if we had waited for the paint to dry a little longer, or just used a different type of paint. Take a look at the photo to the right to see what I mean.

3. Attaching a water hose to a sink to fill up a kiddie pool is very time consuming but, nonetheless, it worked just fine. By the time we finished painting the model, the pool was full and ready to go. The only issue is that the water was freezing cold because, of course, hot water will not stay hot for long. Next time we will need to figure out a way to heat the water so that it’s not cold. But, shout out to the model because she handle it like a champ!

Aside from the few things I’ve mentioned above, I’d say this photo shoot was a success and I can’t wait to do it again. 

Now, we can move forward to the good part. Check out the video and pictures below from this awesome themed paint shoot.. ENJOY!
