In the beginning, there was water ..
Kim & I met on Deviantart.com around mid-June where we talked about possibly doing an underwater photoshoot together. Due to conflicting schedules, it took us several tries, but we finally managed to plan one for the beginning of July.
So I packed my gear and drove to Silverdale where Kim & I shot throughout the night in a pool.
Underwater photography might sound easy but in reality it requires a lot of work. Camera gear is clunky (that includes underwater housing with two big strobes) and heavy to carry around. Water itself, though warm to the touch, will be freezing by the end of the shoot – and that’s even in a 3mm wet suit! Focusing is an issue and holding a pose close to impossible.
But after several hours and 4 Double Shot Espressos from Starbucks we finished – I packed my gear and drove home while listening to loud music to not fall asleep behind the wheel.
Sadly, due to unforeseen circumstances I wasn’t able to process those photos until recently (I’m so sorry Kim!) but finally managed to work on some photos during the Thanksgiving weekend- and here they are.
