the siren's return

“I am a siren, and for my adoration of mankind, have been caught in fishing nets one time too many. And in those fishing nets I have learned too many unfavorable things about human intentions and the lack of trust and goodwill; I'm not going to allow myself to be caught, anymore. Sirens do well at singing the sirens' song and dragging vile people to their deaths, and

for good reason!” - C. JoyBell C.

 

[First off, this is not at all my concept--I was utterly inspired by a shot of Karrah Kobus's (check out its amazingness here: www.flickr.com/photos/karrah_kobus/5984347666/in/photostream) and wanted to see if I could re-create something similar. I was so impressed by the fact that she and her model only did one take that I wanted to give it a whirl, and this was the result. One thing I learned: the continuous shutter mode on Scott's camera (which is what I'm borrowing while my D40 is out of commission) isn't as fast as I'd hoped. I would've liked to have caught her down just a *bit* further, but I got this one and the one *right* before she hit the water.

 

ANYWAY, Erin! She's amazing. Amazing, I say! I love working with her, not only because she is willing to do the most uncomfortable of things, like this, but also because she's just a fantastic person. I'm rambling now. The end.]
