Come September, Josh and I will be in full swing planning our big collaborative shoot. For now the details of that will remain hush-hush, but one thing I will reveal is that part of this big shoot will include a session underwater. With this in mind (plus his other motives) Josh rented a camera housing for his 5D MKII. We got together for a couple of shoots to test the waters, if you will.
The results of our last shoot showed a little of what I have learned from trying to photograph in such a different environment. These past shoots represent the first time I have ever shot underwater.
With the help of Tricia (see Just A Phase?) we had use of a pool and a very willing model. With my friend Brennon’s help, we had oxygen tanks and an octopus of regulator elements plus some diver’s weights. After the first shoot with models, it was obvious how much these were going to help us – boy did they ever?! Finally, we had two more models, both of which have plenty of water experience and love to do crazy stuff. J.B. and Mitch were great in helping and modeling and even filming the shoot.
