This concept was created November 2014 after a month of planning. The idea was to have Mother Nature coming to the surface, for a brief moment, to watch Autumn's last breathe.
I glued over 300 craft and real leaves onto her dress. She is also standing on a foot stool. I had a PCB Einstein with a softlighter II modifier, camera left and high.
I'd like to thank Season Ausley for her awesome support of these crazy ideas that I have, and for being a great model!
