The underwater fashion photos featured in the May 2014 Sun Magazine (available May 18) were taken by Sun photographer Lloyd Fox in a pool at the home of Mary Kay and Chuck Nabit.
Lloyd: I used my Nikon D3, which is the camera I use on all of my assignments, but I did use a special bag that made my camera safe to use under water. Lloyd: I would talk with the models about what I was looking to achieve with the images, before we got in the water. Lloyd: The reflection pictures worked well when I was deeper in the water and the models were just below the surface. Lloyd: The main benefit of shooting under water was the ability to capture the beauty and elegance of the flowing dresses, as the models floated as well. John-John: The makeup artist, Lexi Martinez of LM Artistry, purchased special cosmetics for this shoot that held up fabulously in the water. Leeann: I think the biggest challenge was getting the exact shots we wanted in such a challenging environment.

ABOUT THE DARKROOMThe Darkroom, the photography and video blog of The Baltimore Sun, shines a light on visually captivating stories of our past and present. This is a picture of gun-lover Andrew Tuohy firing a .45 Kimber 1911 underwater in his pool. Thanks to Dunc, who's never shot a gun underwater but did try dropping a rock on a fish once.

Professional makeup artist, owner of Kim Porter Beauty, and The Makeup Studio & Beauty Lounge located in Virginia Beach! I already had a lot waterproof makeup in my kit, but purchased a waterproof foundation. I've ever applied so I know it works great, but it is definitely not meant for underwater. Styling was provided by Sun reporter John-John Williams IV, and the art director for the shoot was Sun design editor Leeann Adams.
It would help keep the bag below the water, as the bag wanted to float to the surface each time I would swim down with the camera. I would shoot under the water for about 30 seconds, and talk with the models each time we would come up for air. First, the models had to keep their eyes open for extended periods of time while under water. For a few of the shots, I would hold a model’s hair to the side and then quickly swim out of the way, so Lloyd could get the shot. It’s tough to hold your breath, not blow bubbles, work the garment and look pretty all at the same time. I picked clothes that were going to show up because of vibrant color or clothes made of fabric that would move under water. It had to be the perfect spot that would allow Lloyd [Lloyd Fox, Sun photographer] to have the control he wanted, while being large enough to accommodate the full reach of the garments.
It showcases the exciting work of our staff, offers tips in the craft, and highlights the emerging community of independent media makers.


Lloyd, John-John and Leeann answered some questions about the unique underwater photo shoot. I also had an assistant [Leeann Adams] holding me below the water so I could shoot for longer periods of time. Normal radio remotes that I use for other fashion shoots do not work under the water, so I figured out a way to set off my lights that were located above the water, which were triggered by my flash below the water. Also, because the dresses were constantly in motion under water, it was impossible to predict what would happen each time. Matthews and Mary Frances Bloome, both of Phillip Michael Studio — used techniques to push the hair away from the face under water. You could only be under for a bit before you have to come back up, and then you’d go under and have to get set again. But Lloyd did a lot of research and testing in the weeks leading up to the shoot, so the bugs had been worked out.
I also had some water start to get into the housing, and I had to exit the pool a couple of times to dry it out. Everyone was really committed to making this shoot work, and I think it turned out beautifully.
