This image caused a lot of stress in my home. My husband walked in my home studio, after this shoot and about killed me because of the HUGE mess. I used baby powder to achieve the ice effect, as well as the smoke effect. I love working with baby powder, however it makes QUITE the mess. There was baby powder EVERYWHERE. And it lasted for days and days....everything smelled really nice though. I dumped about half of a large container of baby powder on her head. Thank you to my little model who worked through it so nicely.

Thanks for the comments and votes. A red ribbon in a cool challenge is great with me!

I thought this was amazing Jennifer. I gave it a big fat 10, and so glad you ribboned. Congrats!

Oh, also...it looks like it could be a scene straight out of a movie. :)

Love this shot!

When your model thaws out sometime in June, stops shivering sometime in July, maybe I can book a shoot with her :D

I dont care for the vagueness of the processing in the torso, but the handling of the face, particularly the eyes is very deft, and the set up is top notch. Ought to ribbon.

Brilliant makeup (although I'm not sure why the undereyes were left natural) and nicely lit. Love the mist! This will finish on the front page.

Interesting. Love the generous space on the left, and the slight warmth beneath her eyes. The smokey background seems appropriate, not tacky, and adds some needed contrast/texture.
