The photograph depicts the Biblical Satan as a serpent whispering to Eve in the Garden of Eden.
I worked with a snake handler and captured this image in one shot. I have worked with the athletic female talent many times, fortunately, she was looking forward to working with one of the largest white snakes in America.
The snake was attracted to the warm nude female body wrapping around her with little help from the handler. The snake's tongue communicating with the talent was definetly the decisive moment. Tonality adjustments were used in post to enhance the ethereal quality.
