Another way to have fun doing photos is getting to be any character you want! Anduin and I wanted to create a modern interpretation of Ophelia from Hamlet. It was the dead of winter, so we had to make do with a bathtub…

Lovely and definitely more contemporary. I am assuming the Millais painting of Orphelia from Hamlet was inspirational? ☺
I do love that painting, but wasn’t going quite as dreamy as that 🙂
You went just right. That painting was suited to its time. In reality a contemporary picture should be set in a bath as that is an appropriate spot for a suicide (sound morbid don’t I? LOL). I also love the pale skin which matches the porcelain bath. The make-up is also good because it suggests a statement on the part of Ophelia (am I overthinking this?). Greg 🙂
