I'm not much of a real underwater photographer but I've doing a lot of reading and learning here because a while ago I had a job (I'm a professional "land" photographer) that required to shoot a jewelry collection underwater. The designer got her inspiration from the underwater world, so shooting the promotional pictures underwater made sense. Since I learned so much about equipment and other stuff here, I wanted to share this image with you.
I'm an occasional scuba diver and I wanted to get that magical feeling of being underwater in the shots. Because there's no open water that's warm and clear enough for model shooting here in Belgium, we tried to replicate that open water look in a swimming pool. This picture was made with an Olympus E-PL1 and a 14-42 kitlens in an Olympus housing with flat port. There's no ambient light in the picture. This was lit with a studio strobe on the side of the pool and two Inon flashes with CTO gels underwater.
Let me know what you think.
