Elissa in the Woods (Halifax, Nova Scotia)

Digital infrared original, 3 image stitch
It is always challenging to work with the Nude in a fores; trees are, ultimately, upright sticks, but in this case, I quite enjoyed the way that Elissa emerges from within the trunks.

After we worked with the trees some, I felt I needed some contrast, and this large glacial erratic, sitting isolated on the edge of the forest, served as the perfect counterpoint.

The last images of the session were set against the glow of sunset; the placement of some of the branches were a little nod to classical sculpture, but I am not sure if I like how they isolate Elissa's hand on the right side of the image...I think I'd have preferred the image without the screen of leaves.
