This is a shot I took of a sand flat at night in about 3.5 mtrs of water amongst some kelp in slightly hazy water. the furthest distance is about 5 meters.
The location was Ricketts Point Reef, Melb, Vic, Australia
Using a these four things:
Pananosic TZ5 compact camera,
500g lead weight, and a
Princetec not very bright light.
There wasn't any post processing done on the image.
I placed the camera in the sand and set it on a 15 second exposure, then I swam out and painted a path. This is my first attempt at this type of exposure photography, I was at OzTek and saw some presentations by Jill Heinerth where she had painted some cave entrances and ponds, which totally blew me away.
I thought it would be a great thing to try and learn about, so this is my first attempt.
I'd love any feedback and/or ways to improve the mage or the engagement in the image.
This is all new stuff to me.
