This is a self portrait homage to one of my favorite Italian Baroque artist, Caravaggio. This is my interpretation of his painting "Mary in Ecstasy".
I shot this in my Livingroom, using nothing but window light. I printed the actual painting by Caravaggio and tethered my camera to my laptop so I can compare the images as I shot them. I used a remote trigger to take the images. The color of the blanket was originally blue. I changed the color of it to red in photoshop. I muted the white blanket and added some yellow hues in order to give it an old vintage feel. I added texture and dodged and burn respectively in order to give this a painterly feel.
