View Full Version : Mermaid inspired beach shoot

05-25-2013, 10:31 PM
We just got home from the Outer Banks, and I had planned to do photos in the lacy tail I was working on, but I wasn't happy with the way it came out so at the last minute I tried making a fluke that I covered in gold lame fabric. It was ok, but not quite what I wanted, so I gave up on that idea. I made my seashell bra 2 days before we left and a hair clip just minutes before we left. I ended up just wrapping some fishing line around my skirt hoping to get the look I wanted. I really wish I had a nice tail. Hopefully next time. My hubby took these for me and I had to do alot of editing in Photoshop, as he is not a photographer and can barely work my camera. I am happy with the way they came out though. I will post a link to the full gallery if you want to see them all

Thanks everyone! Raina, I enjoyed reading your book while on my beach vacation. I am half way through. I especially love the dedication to the haters. LOL I have had to do that numerous times as well ;)

So I was playing in Photoshop and mixed a couple photos together to get a somewhat decent pretend mermaid tail shot. LOL
