I know this isn't the usual underwater fair that is presented here, but wanted to share my recent endeavors. Got my Ikelite housing in the fall. I use my old Canon 5DmkII with the 17-40mm f/4L lens. I shot my first mermaid in my pool in December and posted in on social media and got inundated with Merfolk wanting to shoot. As soon as the rain stops I have 5 lined up to shoot. Who knew there were so many mermaids around. So here is Christine, and Mermaid Atlantis.

Don't even begin to think I'm criticizing your images.
Just a natural curiosity.

Number two is wonderful.......really​, really wonderful.


"Your" and "you're" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"They're", "their", and "there" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"Fare" and "fair" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one. The proper expression is "peace of mind", NOT "piece of mind".

Brilliant images and nice to see something new. The processing brings them alive as well.

1, 2 and 4 are my favs.

Thank you.

I just posted a BTS video of the a portion of the shoot with Mermaid Atlantis so you can see the setup.

Nice..it is hard to find models that know how to hold their breath and keep their eyes open. Nicely done.

The 2nd mermaid is a free diver. When we started the session I could stay down longer than her. Within 30 mins (after she warmed up) she was staying down 4+ mins. I would come up get a breath go back down, 3 or 4 times. :)
