And now a small confession; I've always loved mermaids. The manatees in the background is a nice touch, but my favorite aspect is definitely the tail. I like how you made the fin behave like hair with it's folds and the way it flows. All those bubbles... I can't even imagine how long that must have taken to get right. Very nicely done, lovely work.
I love doing mermaids, one of my favourite subjects but also quite difficult to get stock for. For this one I had to break my own rule and use stock that wasn't my own! Thank you, I'm very pleased you like it!
Thank you Karla! Yes she's a great model and manages to get great poses for all the themes I was after, I'm a little spoiled for choice! To be honest all the models I've shot so far have been really good, the only problem has been me getting the lighting wrong and not getting Katie to wear the pearls for this shot when the whole reason I asked her to bring them was for the mermaid shots!
