Underwater Nude 71 (Closeup 1)
Underwater is one of the most demanding, yet rewarding environments for fine art figure photography. Bodies, attitudes and relationships transform in a gravity-free environment, creating new options for images that would be difficult or impossible to achieve on dry land.
These images are photographed in swimming pools in and around Los Angeles, using only natural light. Each one requires many hours of computer retouching and enhancement to bring out the color and detail that underwater photography often lacks. Limited edition prints are made on heavy fine art paper and have a greater life expectancy than archival wet process prints.
