Underwater Testing - Jellyfish


Testing props, wardrobe and anything else needing to be done for Mermaid Portfolio Workshop. We thought we'd want to mix a mermaid with a jellyfish, so had to find a jellyfish that could travel to Nassau by air. Here 'tis in late afternoon surface backlighting and video lighting from camera-left.

Dry Ice Bubbles for Underwater Fashion


Underwater photography, whether it be dance, large and macro marine life, mermaids, art or fashion requires continuous experimenting and inventing. This shot was prompted by "I'm tired of being chained to this computer, let's go do something creative." In the process, we wanted bubbles, so instead of a scuba tank, we had some dry ice from an ice cream cake shoot and put some pieces behind the model. Works great.

Model: Christina Macfarlane
Dry Ice: Uncle Harry's Ice Cream Cakes
