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 "moot point", NOT "mute point".

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

1, 2 and 4 are my favs.

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. :)
