Underwater

In this selection of images, the vantage point is from below the surface and most of the subject is as well.

Underwater images show a world that is somewhat alien to the viewer. Gone are the familiar behavior of light and gravity. The effects of atmosphere on perspective and light are peculiar.

With both the camera and the subject under the surface, many things are different in the process of making submerged images. A change in tools and environment affects the process on both sides of the lens.

Circumstances are less forgiving and we must rely more on instinct, sometimes on luck. If working with water is akin to flinging paint onto a canvas, then working underwater is like doing it in a stiff breeze.
