Underwater Photoshoot at UWM
My photographer buddy Alvin is from the Philippines so he’s half merman and loves the water. So him living in the wonderful wisconsin he doesn’t have the warm weather and clear water like he is used to.
Now he has me convinced to help do some underwater fashion photography even though i’m not the most talented swimmer. By that i mean i can’t swim, just sink to the bottom gracefully. Also being in Wisconsin it’s very hard to find an indoor pool to let us do what we want to do for cheaply. But for this shoot we were able to shoot in the UWM pool for a few hours.
The gear we used was Alvins E-1 with the Ikelite #6851 housing and some UW strobes. They crappy thing was the playback was not working on the camera for some weird reason so we really couldn’t check the photo to see if we got the right exposure. For what we had we did a decent job but there is still always room for improvement. Practice makes perfect.
