Shooting underwater is full of fun and challenging! In the past nine months, I try to tackle all the problems, design my underwater flash system and try to move all my equipment underwater. Hopefully, I got a fantastic team, and they really help me to establish my project smoothly, now it’s time to retouch all the photos that I have done. It’s good to gain some more experiences in the visibility of the water related to my post-production in the project.
The main difficulties for shooting underwater is that we can’t communicate as effective as we are on the ground, the preparation works take more time than usual, especially we need to design our own hand signal that the whole team should understand. The lighting setup also needs longer that usual, but after everything planned and we execute it. It becomes much easier than what we think.
We also developed a set of underwater model training, and we strongly recommend bride and groom to take it before we go down for shooting, it makes the shoot much easier and more efficient. It also gives us more understanding of the couple’s ability and fine tune the posing. It’s important for the bride and groom to have a brief knowledge of the relationship between light and posing as the sunlight direction keep changing throughout the shoot.
Love the beautiful scene underwater; everything is just floating, the bridal gown, the hair, the sunlight from the surface of the water make the whole scenery absolutely fantastic! When I watch the monitor on my camera after finished the shoot, it’s excited!
We are currently launching another bridal project underwater in many famous diving sites around the world. If you are interested in that, please feel free to contact us!
Will share more in the upcoming months. Stay tuned!
