A week in Fakarava - Tetamanu / Tuamotus by Christian COULOMBE

Adverse weather, with strong wind, prevented us from making the expected shootings we came for. Underwater and drone views. Meanwhile we took the opportunity to make different shootings indoor, in ruins of a house, with a pig ... That was a lot of fun still.

Underwater dancing by Christian COULOMBE

Francis and Aurelie are experts free-divers. They had prepared some figures for that shooting, but their practice underwater, with "empty lungs" has appeared to be more difficult than expected.
With no sensation of weight and few visual references, make a figure is a real challenge !

Sup Sailing underwater by Christian COULOMBE

Thanks to @mathieu_fouliard who lent me a perfect RRD sail for that series !
My two sailors for the occasion were quite performing, even though the bottom was 5 meters deep. Congrats @hellody.zip & @maronuirichmond, you made it good !
 

Underwater Fashion Show by Christian COULOMBE

First Underwater Fashion Show was completed last Saturday with Mermaid Marie-Clémence et her assistant Annabelle.
The red carpet is lying on a sand bottom at about 4 meters deep. Flower pots and stones hold it in place.
The Dress was made by Christopher Prenat for a Miss Tahiti show. It's made of tulle, shells and pearls.
