Fire
Underwater Photograph

This image is from a collaboration between myself, body painter Michele Pulsifer and model Lilah Bazarte and is part of a series featuring the elements earth, wind, fire and water. Michelle spent four hours painting Lilah and finished her look with hair extensions. The photos for this project were taken underwater in my backyard pool. A black backdrop made for a nice contrast and sheer fabric was used for a dramatic effect. I felt mirroring this shot in particular worked well for the final image and it became my favorite from the set.
