Ponyo - The Sea Goddess and her Daughter



Ponyo - The Sea Goddess and her Daughter
From Ponyo On The Cliff By The Sea

Soooo.... more than a year after doing this shoot I finally get round to posting something :P

Love love LOVE Ghibli to death and I simply adore Ponyo, been meaning to do an underwater shoot since I first saw the film (this is underwater shoot take 2, wasn't so successful the first time round almost broke Straw's camera LOL)

Shot by the amazingly talented :iconstrawdoll: I can hear her screaming FINALLYYYY at me all the way across the ocean hahaha
See more of her wonderful work here : #strawtography

Costume made and worn by: :iconarlo-arleh:

My sexy Fujimoto: :iconalita-b-angel:

The Shoot:

Wasn't as freezing as the first shoot but only by the slightest margin! Decided after the disaster of last time to hire proper waterproof casing since I didn't want to risk damaging :iconstrawdoll:'s camera AGAIN D: this meant it was a bit pricey, but the photos turned out beautifully and I couldn't have asked for more from our beloved photographer <3 you Strawww

Supreme thanks has to go to :iconqueencattabby: and :icontreminate: for helping us on the day, couldn't have done it without you :)

Funny, for someone who has a degree in Design you think I'd know how to use photoshop a lot better than I actually do... *hurrdurrr* I won't lie it took me some time (and a few underwater photography tutorials heehee) to figure out how to best colour grade this image. I think I did OK :D
