This Mermaid Photo Session, photographed in Northern California at the beach, filled with splashing waves, was so much fun to shoot. Mermaid Photography Sessions are not just for little girls, I photograph a surprising amount of women who have always dreamed of being a magical mermaid since they were young.
This mermaid is wearing a Tail designed by Mertailor in Caribbean Blue, the top was handmade by a friend of a friend with real seashells for this Mermaid.
Photographing at the beach rather than a studio is so much more authentic feeling, except for the sand that can sometimes get on my on-location lighting tripod and the fact I sometimes get soaked and so does the Mermaid photo model.
This Mermaid Photo below had some Mermaid Artwork so it looked like she had part of the tail underwater. Shooting at a beach location is really enjoyable, however it really still lends itself to adding in photographic artwork enhancements for the full dreamy effect.
and of course, the best part of Mermaid Photography is that I can also create fun artwork from the Session with enhanced digital painting techniques. I'm really interested in catching my shot with perfect lighting in an authentic location and the best camera equipment, but, honestly I was a visual artist BEFORE I ever got so deep into photography & learned how to do digital painting and retouching within Photoshop a very long time ago. I loved editing and digital painting so much that I actually earned 2 degrees in Digital Arts New Media / Multimedia & in Visual Design.
Here is an image from the above Mermaid Photoshoot with some of my added in, limited edition Realm of Neptune Artwork. (Now I don't sell these backgrounds anywhere or to any other photographers, so you are guaranteed an original and personalized edition of this Mermaid Artwork complete with your photograph from my Studio .
