I have been working on the composite piece above for a few months and finally got it to where I wanted it. The setting is Pennhurst State Hospital one of the Abandoned America workshops I had taken earlier in the year. I had seen this wall and thought it would make a great background for one of my composites. The image of me was shot in my bathroom of all places! It has a lot of light and the wonderful skylight in it that gives me the light I am looking for during certain hours of the day. I actually put the gown together myself using fabric I purchased and pinning here and there. I learned to do this watching a Jennifer Hudson workshop on CreativeLive. I worked the image in Photoshop and Color Efex Pro. Textures are by Dirk Wuestenhagen and 2 Lil Owls. Shot with my Fuji X-Pro1.
The composite image below was shot at Scranton Lace Factory and I just kept thinking it would be really eerie if a haunting face was coming through the one of the window panes. The image is one I shot in my library this time (another sky light area) laying on the floor with my Fuji X-Pro 1 on a tripod above me looking down. I worked this image in Photoshop using luminosity masks to bring out the detail and light. Fuji X-Pro 1 was used for both images.
