Hi all,

 

I have a new project in my hands.

Friends of mine have asked me if I could make underwater pictures for their wedding cards.

I would like to do that, but how do you start...

 

I have been thinking of a black uw backgrounddrop with weights.

Can it done without ?

 

I also would ask to dim the lights above the pool; Only the lights in the pool would be on.

 

I have only 2 ys-D1 underwtaer strobes and one speedlight nikon SB900.

 

Do you need above lightning ?

If you take pictures in open water fashion shoot, then you only have your two strobes, why do you need more in the pool ?

 

Thanx

We did that for our Save the Date cards, but I had a friend use my rig and we just used ambient light. That may be a good place to start as you would have many more photos for the couple to choose from that would be successful.
