From the Fog by yenna-photo From the Fog by yenna-photo
Ohoho, I've been trying to shoot this for days, but the weather hasn't been on my side. Today, it was FINALLY foggy enough, though it wasn't very pretty. I'm going to try this again if I happen upon a morning where the fog dances nicely on the lake. And omg, this dress floats! I love it so much. It didn't sink though I had her in the water for over half an hour and it didn't get very wet either. It looked so nice because it didn't sink. I'm just afraid I might catch a cold because I was in a hurry to get to the lake and forgot to take my rubber boots. Which ended up with me in the lake barefoot, haha =__=;; My hands got pretty cold too, because I abandoned my gloves.

I'm not entirely happy with the shoot as a whole (repetitive), but some shots ended up quite lovely. And this session definitely improved my mood from when I woke up. I took a ton of similar photos but I just couldn't stop. I'll be posting them to my blog today.

There were 4 people who came for a swim too, and one woman who came to take photos of the fog but was dissappointed because it wasn't very fancy-looking (she only had a cellphone camera, though). I also got asked: "What are you doing?" and "Is that a doll?" twice, which is kind of dumb because I'm certain these people could see very well that it's a doll (what else would it be?) and what I was doing (taking photos??). One woman asked if I was doing photography relating to.... something...? And all I could answer was "I'm just taking photos...?" Like, does there have to be a deep meaning to everything? ^^;;;  But damn the people for stomping on the pier like elephants while I was trying to take photos. The doll was already wobbly in the wind, let alone when the whole ground was shaking. This one daft kid even walked right between me+camera and my doll. Like wtf? And when her dad came out of the water he was like "Did you see the doll? Did you see it!?!?" and all I could think was how could she NOT see it, she almost bumped right into it and sent it into the lake. People, really...

But despite the random people, I had a lot of fun.

If I had been there with you, I probably would've watched you with interest! Hope you didn't get a cold! But if you did, it was worth it ;D

That sounds very annoying about those people while you did your photoshoot. I would be so annoyed!
I've seen a mask like that skull one before. May I ask where you got it? :)

I find it funny how this person tells us a story about how he got this doll up and how hard it was to take the shot because of the bloody tourists and the fog not cooperating with him, when it turns out all he gets in resposne is "Lol I luvd it." 

Yknow, if ya wanna say somethin, maybe it could be somewhat more informative?  For example, I find the fact he didnt photoshop it at all to be impressive.  If I was there, Id be watching intently to see how he goes about his art. ;P  But not actually getting in the way...

Reminds me of Lake Natron in Northern Tanzania. The lake has extremely high soda and salt content that animals who come into contact with the water are known to calcify, making them look like petrified zombie animals.
