BlogBehind the Scenes of Underwater Photography
One of the things I love about photography is that you never conquer it. There is always something to learn, something to play with or an idea to experiment with. Recently, underwater photography has been a fun project I am enjoying. My Dad has shot underwater marine life for 30 years. During the winter, when the weather isn’t very good for diving, we take to the pool for some unique high fashion portrait sessions. What fun it is to photograph under water!
I would say underwater fashion photography is more challenging than anything you can do above ground in terms of photography. There are so many variables going on in the water with limited time to capture the image you see in your mind’s eye. Everything is constantly moving, including yourself as you try to capture the image. Getting a natural expression from your subject can take some time for them to get comfortable in the water and and comfortable working with the camera. Then you have to consider light and the lack of it and how to overcome that. High wattage movie lights, an ikelite housing and a wide angle lens are the few essential tools we work with to create some of these images.
