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.
