My model lay on a glass table on top of a red cloth with 2 table lamps underneath. We entwined red snakes through her hair. Cropped resized, colour, hue, exposure/lighting, clone, diffuse glow& ysm.
Took seperate photos of a rubber snake because I wanted these snakes to look like they were jumping out of her head.
Used the above methods and cut out the snakes from the photo and added to the main photo.

I might suggest brightening this photo up a little... there is nothing 'white' in it; the highlights are grey, which makes it feel a litle dismal. A VERY cool idea though - excellent try!

The focus is a little too soft. I like soft focus on skin, but I would like to see the hair and snakes sharper. I like the composition.

This is cool. A bit too contrasty because most of the detail is lost in the hair but a very creative setup.

What a great idea for this challenge. It's a wonder not more people thought of this. The model, colours and snakes are great. One of my favourites.
