Engulf Me by Jaicca Engulf Me by Jaicca
Years ago Sisi and I did a water photoshoot ([link] [link]). Looking back on it, we both agreed it was one of our favourite and funnest shoots, so we decided to revisit the theme :) Enjoy!!

You can find me on Twitter :D [link]

A modern day twist on Opehilia by Sir John Everett Millais and it works so well, the pose and setting is perfect as is the tones and colour, shooting in water is not easy as you have to avoid both reflections and glare. I have no doubt the set up was not easy and you dont get many chances to get this sort of shot right.

Here though it is right and kudos for the effort put in place to pull this off, the modern Gothic playing with an old established image has made this portrait stand out beyond so many others.
What do you think?

simply breathtaking.

from her makeup to her expression to her the dark cold water...everything works perfectly. Also, I love the contrast in the filmy/icy water and the lace.

Definitely great work!! One question I always had on my mind is, where did you find the pool of water? Some random location? :wow:

And was this inspired by some other work? ^^ :heart:
