Underwater Fashion Photography

Recently, we have been given opportunities to advance our careers simultaneously, which has kept us very busy! Eric is 6 weeks into his new full-time job, and GA left her former design position to start a fantastic new senior design position at another company. Business has also been good with freelancing and photo shoots. A sign of an improving economy we hope! 
Eric combines his talents as a certified technical diver and experiences with underwater archeology to specialize in underwater fashion photography. This week on Studio Machine, he will share behind-the-scenes imagery from underwater shoots. This dazzling magazine cover image, by Zena Holloway, inspired his interest in shooting underwater fashion. Holloway shoots models in a specialized all-black tank at her London studio, adding the colorful effects with Photoshop. We love her use of lighting and the shapeliness of her models' poses.

A Lite-Brite Nite

We continue our walkabout of the Herndon Festival. There is something magical about an amusement park at nite. We watched the rides come alive with bright lights and colors.

View from the Ferris Wheel

The Herndon Festival is our hometown's big annual event: five days filled with live music, crafts, fireworks, and rides. We were really looking forward to a ferris wheel ride at sunset, and Eric brought his camera to capture the view.

Today we thank them all. Here is a collection of iconic poster art recognizing the heroes of today and yesterday.
