Underwater Photo Shoot!

July 27, 2012  •  2 Comments

I love water! And I love photography!  When I get to combine taking photographs with water, I am one happy photographer.

Taking photos underwater is LOTS of Fun! But is also has a few extra difficulties. 
First of all you are under the water and after diving to the bottom you must reorient yourself.  Then find the direction of light that you want to have and then compose the picture.  All of this is done without communicating with your model and without breathing (unless you of course you are scuba diving...which I have done for an underwater shoot before).
After the picture has been taken there are many "imperfections" within the water (bubbles, dirt, and even swimming spiders). Although I must say that these "imperfections" add to the beautiful mystique of the photograph.

Underwater portraits gives a chance to play with water, fabrics, movement, and see the world through a new lens.

This past Wednesday I was able to go out and do another underwater photo shoot (It has been awhile since my last one).  I think that I can say that we all had lots of fun! We played around with a few ideas/props and a bunch of different outfits. A big THANK-YOU to my models, they were the best models one could ask for!

Here is a peak at some of the photos from Wednesday's shoot!

These pictures are absolutely striking and stunning. It takes a swimmer, a breath-holder, a photographer, a light-watcher, and a sheer genius to do what you have done!

Good work Miss. Caroline Wintoniw!!!
