Luckly my Partner is a very skilled diver, communicates well and works hard for the shot.
Here are some of my favorite.
Critiques always Welcome and appreciated.
Some of the things I need to improve on is getting the whole sub in the photo and getting the diver to fill more of the frame.

question: why do you call it a "sci-fi seiries" ?

I just think it has a very sci-fi feel to it, almost fantasy like.
Ahh, I get it. I was also just told that it has a Batman feel to it.
Hawaii skin diver magazine ask for a photo with a similiar feel as the corsair plane wreck.
* corsair photo was not taken by me*
Do you think I acheived a similiar "feel" ? If not was can be changed?

The first thing I noticed was that all your shots seem to have the sub moving away from the camera and into the background, I believe that there is more interest from the picture viewers point when a main object in a shot is coming toward them, even the wreckage of the plane in the magazine example, we know that it's not going anywhere but the photographer has taken the shot so that the plane is pointed toward the veiwer.
I realise that there may be a lot of persuading to be done with the submarines owners but for saftey's sake you may have to talk them into bringing the sub to a complete stop in order to get this shot. I'm sure that you will eventually get the knockout picture that all the magazines will be after.

Really original work
RE - Hawaii skin diver magazine
More photoshop required.
Increase the blue channel in the black and white image to get more 'whites' into the background water.
Theres not enough contrast in the image
Feel free to email me at email@example.com if you want some detailed BW instructions.

I think you would have a better chance of getting the shot if you put the diver between the sub and the surface.
This would give you the bonus of the drama that forced perspective creates.
You would also get a chance a two different aspects - one as the model descend and then on the ascent
Look forward to seeing your final results.
