Malia has always been there to model for me on any occasion. She works amazingly well underwater, as well as on land  and has availability to travel the world for a paid modeling assignment . If you have any inquiries, just drop me a line, she is amazing.

"Lightness of the Abyss" https://www.juliaanthonyphotography.com/blog/2016/3/-lightness-of-the-abyss Hi there! Todays photo was one picked by the model, Malia Aberg. Malia is amazing in her underwater portraits as well as he portraits above land. I know this all to well, because I tried to look amazing underwater, using this seven foot long peice of red fabric, I got tangled up in it and looked absolutly ridiculous. I want you to know underwater photography is the most difficult form of photography, because you are holding your breath while looking beautiful and holding exquisite poses. 

This scene was in a pool, in Las Vegas, Nevada. I set up a black backdrop and extended it from the top of the pool all the way into the middle of it. I used weights with sand in them, which added clouds of sand, not the perfect environment for a underwater scene, lesson learned. It would be best to fill the weights with clean rocks, and having a sparkling pool would be the best scenario if you dont want to spend hours in photoshop cleaning the scene. 

I like a square format for my underwater scenes, for some reason they just look better to me.

If you have any questions, please leave me a comment, and I will reply as soon as I can.

"The Girl Who Sleeps with Fish" https://www.juliaanthonyphotography.com/blog/2016/2/-the-girl-who-sleeps-with-fish HI there! how are you all doing today? Its a beautiful day here in Las Vegas, very warm and mild. Hope where ever you are you are having a great day:)

 The image I am show casing today, is one of my favorite images from last summer, 2015. It is of the amazing Malia. Malia can hold her breath underwater and look fabulous while doing it. Lots of people are asking how I get the finished effect? Or were there fish with her in the water? The answer is, I added the fish and whimsical effect in post. I added a few textures and changed the blending mode in Photoshop. I went on a photo shoot yesterday to Caesars Palace, in Vegas. I was lucky enough to come across a restaurant, where the major decorations where aquariums filled with goldfish. When I saw them I knew these fish were what I needed to finish the Image. Here it is...

In Utah, lies a beautifully hidden lake, deep in the green thick forrest and surrounded by boats and fish. Panquitch Lake is a great place to retreat from the hot desert sun in Las Vegas, NV.

"Organically Untouched" IPHONE-5 Series https://www.juliaanthonyphotography.com/blog/2016/2/-organically-untouched-iphone5-series I spent 10 days in Nouthern California last November (2015), with Steve Collin. Steve was on a mission to find cell coverage for schools hidden deep in the mist of magnificent towering mountains. Needless to say I was left with lots of spare time to photograph and document much of our time together. I spent many hours hiking with my second best friend, my iPhone-5's camera . My first best friend is my Canon 5d mark ii, just saying. I captured landscapes, waterfalls and beautiful oceans scapes, (that blog coming soon). But my favorite scenes were the little masterpieces beneath my feet. All but one, the tree, were photographed as they lay, untouched by me, except a little editing with Adobe photoshop.

This first brilliantly colored image was on the side walk, right out side the door of the car, I almost steped on it. I snapped a picture, and went into the warm and toasty dinner for a bountiful breakfast.  It was a cold Fall day, a mere 40 degrees, in the Historic Distric of Weaverville, CA. Steve and I ate breakfast, and I browsed through the images and thought to myself, you can do better, go take that image again, from all angles. Im glad I did. "A good photographer will find beauty anywhere" ---Larry Hanna.

These warm collered leaves had fallen from an apple tree, at an elementary school in Legget, Ca. The leaves found their final resting place on a weathered picnic table near the school. I didn't design their placement. This is one of my favorites, because it looks to me, like the leaves are falling.

It was raining twigs and leaves all day and night near this portion of the trip, we were taking some leisure time off in Pacific Heights, California. We spent the night at 1111 Lighthouse Ave, The Monarch Resort. The leaves were floating in puddles of fresh water in the morning where we parked his Range Rover.  These leaves were floating behind the car, when the sun was came out to say hello and I caught the reflection of the clouds through the water.

The next set of images were captured in henderson, NV.

It must have been a windy night, the night before I picked my grandson up from school,  we went to the park next door, Fox Ridge Park. I spotted a bountiful amount of twisted and tangled twigs and leaves, piled, one on top of the other. The sun was laying low and cast long and lean shadows on these naturally designed beauties.

Same park same day, I just love the long shadows and the hint of color left in the pine needles. Foxridge Park.

This one reminds me of a scorpion or spider?

These pine needle, just minding their own business and casting a perfect duplication of themselves.

This "Tree" was actually designed by me. The trunk is actually the roots of a much larger tree. I gathered up its leaves and designed them in a circle at the top of the exposed roots. This image I shall call, "The Giving Tree" titled after my favorite childrens book, written by the late Shel Silverstein, an American Poet.

"Leaves in the Gutter" Yes thats right I found them as they lay tightly bunched in the corner gutter of a play ground. I was with William. I love the colors and textures.

Well thats it for now, I hope you enjoy these images, and stay tuned for my next series coming real soon. Have a great day. 

Warmly, Julia.

"Beatitude" https://www.juliaanthonyphotography.com/blog/2015/12/-beatitude I am working on an underwater series of images that I captured this summer, in many pools in Las Vegas. Each image takes many hours of photoshop because of the impurities in the waters of each pool, making  the production very challenging. Some will be composites and some will be in there natural  state, cleansed  of impurities. I will add one a week, I am excited and hope you will like them. Please leave a comment:) "Beatitude""Beatitude"Happy to be alone.
