It seems that “Selfie Stupidity” isn’t going to stop any time soon. In this latest act of idiocy, French woman Muriel Benetulier was attacked by a crocodile in the Khao Yai National Park while posing for a photo with it. Bangkok Post reports that according to Khao Yai park rangers, the attack occurred on Sunday afternoon. Mrs Benetulier and her husband spotted a crocodile around 2m (6’6″) in length basking in the sun near a canal.
As often seems to happen these days, Mrs Benetulier decided she wanted a photograph of herself with the crocodile. There were warning signs around, in English, warning hikers to keep to the trail and watch out for reptiles. They ignored them. Posing for the photo, she squatted near the crocodile to have her husband take the shot. As she was getting back up, she tripped, which caused the crocodile to attack.
Believe it or not, the photo above is not real, It was composed from several elements, so there was never a dancer that I shot on a dilapidated stage. I only used resources from the IMS mega bundle. In the post below, I am going to break this composite down, step by step and explain how it was made, and why each of the compositing decisions were taken. It is called “Dancing Decay”.
The intention with this composite was to create an atmospheric, creepy and melancholic fantasy image. After gathering the resources I decided on an old, derelict theater, in which a restless ghost of a female dancer is craving for old times, trying to find some last piece of joy in the sunlight on the stage.
