Talking to Dan Kozyndan

Question: Tell me about “Lioness”

I captured this shot of a friend (a sweet lil’ Texas gal from Amarillo, actually) in one of my first attempts a real underwater photo shoot.  The conditions were bad ( A massive forest fire near by was filling the pool with ash) and she had never done anything like modeling underwater, but we added a few disparate props almost at random and something magical started to happen that was not something we had planned at all.  Just looking through the lens a narrative was building itself wholly in my mind, seemingly without any input from me. It was a fun day.
