If you want your model to look like they are really dead then you must make them dress for the occasion.

FIRST: get a long white dress for your model. i got one from a thrift store for $3 which I highly recommend if you plan on cutting it up or throwing dirt on it like i did.

NEXT: cut it up and make it look worn & torn. i threw dirt, flour, and red food dye mixed with vinegar and then olive oil on the dress my model wore to make it look authentic and as if she just rose from the dead after a bloody, violent death.

you shud have made the side view of the model it wud look great , n nice trick with the wooden ladder
the information is good enough to follow and is organized well but the photo its self breaks the rule of thirds which means you basically you have to much background and not enough subject to justify the composition of the photography. also to follow up on that it lacks a bit of style like no clouds or smoke. However that's not what we are focusing on you were trying to teach how to make someone float and did that very well.

Ya the original one I was going to use didn't work because I had left my tripod at home and didn't have much time to take the picture since the place was closing.
cool, what if you wanted to put her higher than the ladder allows?
one need the correct exposures of the scene + the color balance/color combinations ,
>>just get two pics as here
>>get the lady out of a pic in a layer above
>> rest photoshop , pixlr all will allow to move the lady/dead body :)
