The Mermaid

Been trying to do some more creative editing on at least one shot from each session lately...and with the teal hair and makeup and flash gels, this one was just begging to be converted into an underwater scene. So, I took one of my old photos of the water patterns on Redfish Lake, Idaho, and worked it into the portrait as a background (the Lighten blending mode came in rather handy...). I also had fun dropping in some watery highlight patterns on my model's skin, too, just to complete the look!


The blue lipstick might have been a Photoshop touch, too :)
