Sent from above: an icy underwater journey

The enduring threesome of Michael David Adams, Mary Irwin and Cecile come together once more to create what is becoming an iconic underwater photography shoot of unworldly colours and ethereal graces. The second part to this photography shoot reveals the latter half of the original Fire in the Sky shoot.

With more emphasis on the porcelain features of Cecile and the burning red of her hair and lips, the make-up skills of Mary Irwin are needed more than ever in creating the stark contrast of red against blue: fire against ice. This close-up shoot makes use of filtering light, reflective waters and twinkling bubbles to create the overall appearance of a magical underworld.

The acting and expression of Cecile plays a large role in expressing the mood and spectral substance of this shoot, all perfectly captured and contained by Adams, in a photography shoot where each portrait will create and reveal its own narrative.
