Underwater Figure Study

***Please note that my web site has moved to the following link: www.ajkahn.com

The figure photographed underwater.  This is something that has intrigued me for quite some time.  When done right, there can be an otherworldly quality to the images.  It reminds me of a dream-like state.  Although the effect is different, it somewhat reminds me of what one can achieve with infrared photography.  It’s almost surreal.  Having seen some of the beautiful underwater work of photographers such as Howard Schatz and  others, I have been inspired to explore this direction myself.

The following images are from my first attempt at what hopefully will be a new direction for future projects.  Models are Lea Dodson and Unbearable Lightness.

    I love these images! The color shots are especially beautiful. The water seems to really enhance the emotional impact of the colors and the lighting. Well done!

    As a long time admirer of your work and one of Unbearable Lightness’s groupies; these images of her and Lea are wonderful. You may not have experience with underwater images, but your knowledge, comprehension and proficiency in the use of light is evident already. Getting these images out of a small pool is a credit to your expertise. I look forward to seeing more of your underwater work.

      Mr. Wood, you are very kind! This project certainly presented many challenges. But with Unbearable Lightness and Lea’s enthusiasm and patience, I feel we reached our goals. Thanks for your input.
