Very nice collection. I really like the fish behind Ele’s bike on the Thistlegorm.

Thank you Alex for the comment and all the hard work during an outstanding workshop

 

I had to wait quite a bit as all the hatchet fish had been scared off by the remote strobe gang but it was worth it as they tend to give a mixed color reflection with several high contrasting tones depending on the incident angle of the strobes that I had placed in an unconventional way

Now, that's fast! 

 

I'm still on my last trip, as far as a full slideshow is concerned!

 

I suspect it will be August before my Red Sea (Sinai 2014) show sees the light of day...

 

 

... Truk first!

I probably should have dropped a few pics in the full collection as some are technically not the best but I want to keep them there to reminds self of the mistakes that would otherwise made the pictures much better. During the workshop i identified some weaknesses of my set up that I has not considered before as I was not trying certain type of shots so it has been extremely useful also for my videos in the future

I'm sure it meant a lot of work to get the mermaid model in the right position. But for me it was bit odd that you could still see her knees  pointing trough the tail.  (-:

This in fact was the best picture others were worse. I think Kat is really slim and the pointy knees show. I guess she would need to change their tail to mask them as even when they are not bent they show

Yes, With Photoshop you could probably get rid of the knees. And..probably also the bikini top? Mermaids dont wear anything (they told me). Please forgive  me the joke. Your initiative and collection are just fine! And some people believe mermaids also had knees. See the pic of Kopenhagens mermaid.

Every mermaid that I have met has had knees; for some reason few prefer to let the water flow over bare nipples...

They aren’t knees, they are tail fin articulations.
