Two Ladies | Karen Johnson

Well, I was home again from work because of the snow storm so out comes the camera.  I have been wanting to do an image based on “Ophelia” by John Everett Millais so I knew I would have to shoot an image of myself lying on the floor with camera above on the tripod.  I shot with my Fuji X-Pro1 with the 14mm lens.  I used a ten second timer so I could focus, run like hell, throw myself on the floor and pose fast.   I then created a composite using this image and an image I took at Rockefeller Preserve on New Years Day of  looking down through the ice on Swan Lake. Textures are by Brooke Shaden and the blue iciness was achieved by using the Color Lookup adjustment in Photoshop.  I ran the image through Nik Color Efex 4 and then back to photoshop for some final adjustments.  The image is titled “Beneath the Ice”…..
