My latest Tortoise Tales! I'm pleased how it's all going so far. I'm going to try and aim for a Tortoise Tales once a month at least. I also think I'm improving and developing more of a style. I imagine as I keep going I may get rid or re-do a few of the initial images.
This was definitely one of my hardest shoots! I did actually do this shoot twice but ended up sticking with the original. The image is made up of a few different photos, the photo on the bottom left was my base image that I started with then layered it up with sections of other photos such as extra bubbles and Terrence. I re-did the shoot because I didn't feel like there was enough bath bubbles around the bath and Terrence was completely dry where as, would he look better if I'd actually given him a bath?! I tried all these things but I preferred the light, set up and Terrence's pose in the original. I think he'd had enough himself!
I had everything I needed to make the shoot apart from the bath, managed to find exactly what I was looking for online. To make the mini sponge I just cut up an old one I had. Another little detail I love is the mini shampoo bottle, I erased the name of the brand and replaced it with 'Tortoise' ^_^ Did you spot it?
My blog is for updates and a little behind the scenes info on my current projects and activities.
