Good Time Laurie likes to play in the water at sunset.
Another composite from a series of images based on Laurie.
The Background is an HDR image taken in Malibu last year.
We shot Laurie in studio with a 62" octabox above camera at 45 degrees and two 36" gridded soft-boxes camera left to replicate the light from the setting sun.
Laurie was cut out using the pen-tool and added a a separate layer.
About 12 adjustment layers were added to the Laurie to get her tones, colors and shadows to match the background.
Extensive dodging and burning was used to match the shadows and highlights.
The clone-stamp tool was used to remove most of the strobe reflection on the beach ball.

I bugged out her eyes a little with the bloat tool in the Liquify plug-in.
