I shot this picture as part of a spec shoot for True Blood where producers pitched a series of 12 underwater images to land a gig doing advertising for the show. I was just told I am allowed to release the images, so I put some of them up in a blog post :-D The shoot was based around a previous shoot I had done in this same pool with red fabric. I wanted the fabric to be reminiscent of blood, and so I heavily desaturated all that was not fabric in order to give it a grittier feeling. I would love to play with more compositions like this, shooting from a little further back than I normally do, playing up the negative space.

    This is amazing! And so are the rest of the images!!
    The red is a perfect match with the skin and background colours. The motion of the feet gives the image a lot of strength and the way her hands are approaching her head is a great touch. You captured the moment very well!! And, I have to admit, I adore your under water pictures :D
