Shot the model in my studio on a white background, sitting on a plain white pedestal.  Added tonal contrast from NIK Effects in Photoshop CS5 to get a more painted pin-up look. Extracted her to the HDR beach background, added shadows, added a few seagulls and some grass brushes.  Finally added the white vignette, also from NIK Effects, for the finishing touch.  Model is Timillia MM#1740423.  Other credits available on the photo in my port.

Caitlin was shot in her hallway in front of a green screen. It took 15 or 20 shots to get the perfect 'her' and 'card drop.' The background is a  stock piece with many things added and taken away. Even the grin on the cat was added later.
