Experimental composite fashion image of model and fantasy dress

This image is an experimental composite image, made up of multiple overlapping images in the lower part of the picture. To balance the image, I have used Photoshop to create rectangular sections at the top. I have also lightened the skin tones, and added colour to the model's lips and eyes.

Here's a testimonial from the designer of the dress:

“The results of Aidan and Barry's photoshoot were simply brilliant, each photo unique with a touch of traditional elegance. The images have a definitely subtlety, however the use of lighting and direction ensures a sense of impact upon viewing. Both model and dress looked great and with both the direction of both photographers the final product was more than i could have hoped for. i would recommend both Aidan and Barry to all potential clients and would use their expertise without doubt for future projects.”

It's often fun to experiment and improvise in Photoshop. The reason I took the multiple photos was to capture the full extent of the dress, which widens out at the bottom. The dress was an experimental fantasy creation made out of paper and other throw-away materials. It was designed by a fashion student from near Manchester, currently based in Paris. The model was Julie Duane with make-up by Melanie Bannister. This image was captured at my multi-purpose space, serving as photo studio, in Stockport.
