Underwater Fashion No. 2

I converted this one to black n white...you wouldn't even know it was underwater if it weren't for the pose...you would need an elaborate system of cables if you did a shot like this on land...

Absolutely gorgeous...the girl, the camera angle, the texture around. Brilliant shot!

Amazing how nothing in her eyes or attitude shows that she's under water. No wavy reflections on her body either. To me it's as if the shot had been taken on land. While I recognise it as beautiful, the whole purpose of the exercise is lost on me. Why not exploit the underwater aspect more?

Hey Nathalie...you sure make a valid point...this is the first time I have ever done anything like this, so wasn't really thinking of capturing wavy reflections and such...but a great idea...it was hard enough to just get the light right, and to get the scarves flowing right, the model's eyes open, and no bubbles in their nose or face...it was a lot tougher than I thought it would be. Once I master those skills, I can then think of wavy reflections and bubbles...it was a great experience, and I want to learn more about it...
