Mermaid - Tethys 9 by Jaymasee Mermaid - Tethys 9 by Jaymasee
[link](mythology)

A few things about this shots.
I've always been captivated from underwater creatures since I was a child.Expecially mermaids are,for me,creepy and evil creature,and incredibly beautyful and fascinating at the same time.
I've dreamed to portrait one of this creatures for years,and I've decided to base my senior university degree project about them.
But as every project,I've had to make some"Procedural tests" before start my work,so here we are:)

These pictures are VERY IMPORTANT for me.Maybe it's not the first thing you think when you see them,but I was underwater,totally in apnea,in free sea water,wearing a VERY HEAVY dress wich limitate my movement capabilites,and the strange siluette you can spot under my chest is a 2Kg weight.
The quality is not good,because we're shooting with a little NIKON COOLPIX S3100 and not with my usual D90.Why?The scuba case for the D90 is priced 1.500 and I think you can guess why I've used a 199 compact camera -__-
Even if the resoult could be crappy for you,these are the MOST INCREDIBLE PICTURES I'VE EVER TAKE.I've pushed my limits so far,and I will do it again and again,until I'll be satisfied of the result(and I'm NEVER satisfied XD )


So please think about this before being rude with your comment.

I hope I will love those pictures as I loved modeling for them.

(A special thanks goes to my boyfriend,who took the photos for me and prevented me from drowning:love:)
