Editorial | Underwater Beauty









I love underwater pics.

My admiration was sparked by America's Next Top Model cycle 13 Episode 10. I think that was the first time I saw and REMEMBERED an underwater shoot. Watching the process the models went through to get that all important pic, made me all the more appreciative of the results as it wasn't the just the water that was giving the shape and movements of the garments (but is obviously an important factor), but also the movements by the models. I was rendered speechless when I saw these pictures. I wonder if the garments would look as awesome on the dry land...

I wish I knew the actual photo source, I reckon it some sort of edgey fashion magazine like Dazed and Confused... If any of you know, please drop me a comment so I can amend this.

P.S. I came across this incredible video entitled "Dynamic Bloom" by Nick Knight. If you like the above shoot, I highly recommend giving this video a couple minutes of your time. There couldn't have been a more appropriate title for this video, it feels like it should be some sort of commercial because it is so stunning.

    A Fotografia subaquática dá-nos uma visão de movimentos apenas possíveis nesse meio; torna-se ainda mais fascinante quando a tomada de vista se faz para produzir efeitos tão belos e inesperados, sobre modelos ou moda.

    Um Bom Ano.

  21. I love the underwater and night sky theme combined in these pictures. Two of the most romantic things about nature captured. Sort of like Dark sparkling angelic mermaid. Love it!!! I agree the video could have had a better title. The use of the word "dynamic" just doesn't go well with it.

  25. Not a fan of ANTM, but this shoot is GORGEOUS. It didn't even look like it was taken by amateurs... (Am I allowed to say that?) But, this is beautiful. I can only imagine how tiring it must be, to float around in a tank; keeping in mind of their face, and their top to toe.
