Unlikely Backgrounds in Glamour Composites

One of the many advantages of glamour composites is that any background can be placed behind the model. One of my favorite ways to composite is to use a background which would be extremely unlikely, given the appearance of the model.

One such example is an image with a swimsuit, here modelled by Tiffany Felisha, in a scene taken at Gammons Gulch, Arizona. This is a privately-owned 10-acre ranch with old buildings reminiscent of the wild west, and is commonly used as a set for shooting western movies. This was a cold, dark, windy, winter day, with rain threatening. This would be perhaps the last place one would expect to find a swimsuit model, which is why I like it. Both the studio image of Tiffany and the background were photographed with my great friend Benjamin James.

How about a scantily-clad model armed with a gun inside a major Singapore shopping mall? Again, a very unlikely situation, especially when one considers that guns are not allowed in Singapore. Here is such an image with Andrelica:

Here is an image of my friend Charissa cleaning a Honda generator at dusk on Sentosa Island, Singapore:

 Charissa has never even been to Singapore... until now!

Finally, here is Andrelica again, this time in a swimsuit, at Fort Point, San Francisco. This was also such a cold, wet, windy day that no model could survive very long dressed like this:

 It almost appears as though Andrelica is in a jail cell.

This technique is a lot of fun. When a gorgeous model is combined with an interesting and beautiful background, the image becomes even more fun to look at.
