Swamp Thang by PaulMcKinnon Swamp Thang by PaulMcKinnon
I just got back from Nova Scotia, had another chance to shoot olpluvr. She came up with the idea of getting made up then submerging herself in the water, it sounded good to me :) She liked this desaturated look.

If shooting at night, it would be very scary...
I liked it

Great work Paul. Love the reflection of her face in the water. Very well done and presented. :clap:
She really could be the swamp thang. I'm sure there would be a lot of guys hanging around the swamp. :giggle:
