We have been extremely fortunate to have developed a good relationship with the remarkable underwater photography specialist, Adam Opris. Once again we are delighted to showcase a series of utterly stunning and totally unique underwater photographs of his, this time of yoga. As Adam told us “I was always impressed with people who practiced yoga and their abilities to master some of the difficult poses that they do. I was fortunate to work with two international yoga instructors in underwater photo shoots to push their practice! Kerri Verna (@beachyogagirl on Instagram) even brought her husband along to bend and twist to become my first Mermaid Yogi! I was also very fortunate to work with Kino MacGregor (@kinoyoga on Instagram) who is recognized worldwide for being one of only few instructors to receive the Certification to teach Ashtanga Yoga by its founder Sri K. Pattabhi Jois in Mysore, India! These two wonderful yogis truly pushed the envelope underwater to create a mesmerizing display of yoga and became mermaids for the day!”
We have become overnight fans of Adam’s work, having only recently published posts on underwater maternity and in addition, underwater weddings. Clearly we are not alone in our reaction to his work which is being incredibly well received and commented on. When you look at these images it is almost like visual overload as there is so much to admire and take in. Though static photographs, Adam still manages to capture a sense of movement though the wonderful way clothing drifts and floats, while the reflections of the sun on the water create vibrant effects in the pool itself. Add wonderful colors with subjects who are clearly enjoying the photo shoot, as well as the yoga, and you are left with memorable and very thought-provoking images. We have chosen twenty of the best ones for you which we hope you will enjoy looking at as much as we have.
