And I don’t mean the kind that deals with fishes and the like, although I love that too. The underwater world is so astounding that it is amazing it can be captured on “film” and shared with those who aren’t lucky enough to venture into its depths.

They were so beautiful and ephemeral, they could easily stand alone as art instead of just product photography. I have a few crappy underwater cameras that I’ve been longing to play around with and this might just provide the inspiration that I need.

I recently got a great studio lighting set-up and was eager to practice, especially on such a willing participant! The whole shoot was especially fun because of the resources that we had.
