Wow! I ADORE this color scheme!! At first glance she looks like she's surrounded by fallen leaves and rays of a setting sun. I love how you can't even see the blue of the water. Where was this shot? A pool, a lake, a river..? How did you light it?

thanks! :)
I created a set and used a brown tarp as the background, so that is why there is no blue ;)
I used a mixture of daylight and artificial, mainly because i can't bring a 6'x8' "tub" indoors and fill and dispose of water properly, haha

no prob!
and ya know, some photographers don't wanna tell about how they do things, and i hate that! they wont tell you things like how they set up their sets, or plan out their lights, nor their creative processes, buuuttt i wanna share. I am always learning how to do stuff, and I am still in the beginning stages of learning all about photography, so whatever i learn to do, i want others to know too for their benefit because that is how we all learn :D

I'm really surprised to hear you're not a professional photographer... your command over color and mood is masterful. This photograph looks so much like a painting from the way the lines of fabric move. Really, really nice work.

haha, i'm still so excited too! I would have never, ever thought it would get an image with a DD. i've been on deviantart since, i swear jr. high, if not my freshman year of high school, so its pretty badass to get a dd. BUT i definintly couldn't have gotten good at photos today if you hadn't helped along! :D

actually i didn't do that much post processing. This was the first photoshoot i used strobe lights, so the colors and light where pretty exactly what i wanted. Her skin was a little bit washed out, so in curves i did some color correction and made the photograph look a little bit more warm to better correlate with the warm colors of the fabric. :)
