Photographer Henrik Sorensen has uploaded an interesting behind-the-scenes YouTube video of his recent 'submerged fairy' shoot for Hasselblad's advertising campaign for its new H5D medium-format digital camera. Taking inspiration from the Danish folklore and its royal history he opted to use a submerged castle interior as the backdrop. He first went on location to the 18th century Ledreborg Castle and captured a picture of the main hall, then printed the photo onto a 8 x 4.5m plastic backdrop and completed the rest of the shoot in a swimming pool.
