The Kiss

Image Details
December 31, 2014 - 1:24pm

This image is part of a series called Magic Moments. Is a commissioned work. Photos were taken at location using two cameras: One with housing for the underwater scene and the second with radio system with two off camera flashes for the upper scene. Both photos where taken at the same time or in some cases with seconds of difference. Then merged together in PS and adding some digital art like the clouds.

I literally just saw this image printed on the back of a van while leaving Cancun! I was like "hey I know that photo!"

Felix Hernandez's picture

Ohhh mate, you where in Cancun!?... I could have taken you to amazing places for taking pictures...You know... off the traditional tourist spots!... Yes Patrick I did that image for a commercial project down in Cancun, now some agencies and of course the client (a dolphinarium) use it in their advertising. Saludos Patrick.

Well we went to Playa but I saw the Dolphinarium bus add in Cancun on the way to the airport. Very cool!

Hope you enjoy it!!! Playa is a great place!... Next time if you are here and have time, send me a message!

I always though colors underwater didnt mesh up or that her body under water would seem closer than her above water body...this is one of the nicest photos ive seen in a while.

Felix Hernandez's picture

Thanks Binky... Let me tell you that your thoughts are right... so I took this image using two cameras shot almost at the same time... and then compose the to shots in post!...
