Kristi Sherk is one of the top MerPeople on the planet. She's very comfortable in the water, maintains a beautifully natural face, propels herself in the tails with great precision, positions her body with just the right blend of bends and curves, controls normally out-of-control underwater hair and, in this image, positions her arms and hands in a dancer-like grace.
If you follow this Blog or my Wet & Underwater Portfolio, you know I like putting a model's head and/or body near the surface underwater and get both the image and it's reflection. We get an infinite number of versions depending on surface water movement. If we are totally still, it's like a mirror. If we make waves (ripples), we get this.
After repairs from the November Nor'easter, the Lakeside pool (underwater photo tank) is back online. The plaster color was supposed to match the waterline tile color but that didn't happen. However, the pool contractor suggested lowering the water level 1-2 inches to get the tile line to disappear. Some photos need the tile line; others don't.
