Naiads II by CristianaApostol Naiads II by CristianaApostol
Underwater photography project.

Muse Quartet plays, oh and what beguiling music they play! They paid me a visit a while back, we had fun, we worked, and i managed to capture a part of their world!

Alina, Corina, Nicoleta and Maria were great and i am very thankful for having had the chance to photograph them.

Thank you, Andra Maria, for the great makeup!
Thank you, Paula, Ștefan, Florian, Irina, Jolly Manu, for the dedication with which you assisted me in this project.

It was a tough but nice (in my opinion) project, and i hope you like it!

Naiads II by CristianaApostol takes underwater photography to a whole other level, with incredible composition, use of reflection, and mix of beautiful colors, to create an image reminiscent of some frescos of the Renaissance era. ( Suggested by Andorada and Featured by Mrs-Durden )

Wonderful, inventively constructed and produced piece.  Absolutely delightful.
Wonder who volunteered their cello for this?

The cello was there, submerged with us (models and photographer). It was pretty difficult to handle it but we managed in the end :)
