Hi all!  I live in Melbourne, Victoria.  I'm not able to hop in tropical water everyday and take pics of exotic fishies.  I do what I can with what I have, always thinking of new things to portray.  One of the most recognised figures world wide is Mother Mary, so I bought a costume, did a creative thing or two with an off housing strobe, and off we went!

Babushka is a belly dancer and is into extreme sports like kite surfing, so she is very capable underwater. I've done a very rough edit of the sensor for the off camera strobe, which was nestled in the folds of the blanket.

Many great works of art portray an individual as floating, with fabric seemingly weightless and billowing around them.  This can be achieved to great effect underwater.

Here Babushka had to hold down the veil as she was sinking, and then make the pose.  It looks almost...natural, doesn't it?

I really like the first image. Creative composition and a beautiful model.

She is beautiful.  Without the makeup she has a cute dusting of freckles over her cheeks and nose! ;) Oh, and she's French.
