Song to the Siren by zemotion Song to the Siren by zemotion
Preview for's August editorial~!

I got to collaborate with *harlequinromantique! Omg omg she was sooooo nice and sent me so much awesome jewelry I could use for the shoot and they were all so pretty *fangirl gush*

Been a long time since I used sand in the studio! We had about 500-600kg of it, setup and teardown was such a pain but so worth it for the concept I think. Thank you SingaporeBrides for the support~! :heart:

Wow. I love what you've done here, this is a brilliant piece of work. The image in it's whole appears surreal with how porcelain-like the models appear to be. The title works perfectly with the piece as it seems as though the two women are the sirens and they have their own song that they use to lure men into their grasps.
The models themselves are stunning, the poses are loose and the women with her eyes open just shows so much in that one look. It is almost as though she knows what it happening and, while there is nothing they can do about it, she seemingly plots a way out of their situation.
The second woman on the bottom half of the image, is so peaceful as though she has already accepted the outcome of the situation.

Overall, this piece is incredible. I believe you are an amazing photographer.

This is a brilliant piece! I love the simplicity yet compelling nature of it. IT draws you into every nook and cranny through the details. My eyes wondered over everything, the dresses are stunning against the coarse sand. The woman in back beckons with her eyes while the one in front is serine and so peaceful.

Both women are positioned perfectly, not one of them look like they were meant to be anywhere else but there. Song to the Siren, beautiful tittle for a beautiful picture, it fits perfectly with this. the lighting, makeup, facial expressions all of it works with the title and all of it is just stunning.

As always your work is inspiring and fantastic!

HexenStar Featured By Owner Aug 18, 2012  Hobbyist General Artist
Great work!
This composition is really well thought through,
a lot of key details are perfected here, but i think that it
is the lighting (or a post effects) which adds
to it a riveting gothic appeal. Bravo!

On the floating, shipless ocean, I did all my best to smile :sing: I love that song, too! (Unless I'm thinking of the wrong song :ninja:)

Beauutiful! As beautiful as two lonely sirens. Waiting on their island for sailors to pass, so that they may wreck them on their rocks. The waves of their dress and the cold-looking sand really add to the sense of isolation. The jewellery is also a stunning touch, like pearls from the ocean!

Absolutely gorgeous. :) I love the neutrality of colours in the sand, skin, and dress, they all work and blend so nicely together. There's a nice flow of direction as well. And of course the models are beautiful.
Great stuff. :D
