RELAX YOUR FACE

UNDERWATER by KRISS on 30 april 2016

Another couple of photographs we took last week with Sara.
They don’t do her justice and I hope she won’t be too mad at me ! I have chosen these pictures to speak about a very important part of underwater photography I think : the expression of the face.
Besides the technicalities, the post production and all there is to do and buy and prepare to get one partially half good photograph, there is one very important thing to consider.
Humans are not fishes and we are not equally comfortable under water.
Some people for instance can barely put their head under water in the shower (and not necessarily because they have been water boarded by counter spies in the middle east).
No some people simply dread water and some others are partially comfortable and I think it’s most of people’s situation.

I know it was Sara’s who is comfortable enough but very cold and despite most of her efforts to relax her face, I only got a few shots where her eyes don’t betray her discomfort.
What is funny is that her fiancé is actually a swimming instructor and he tried to give her techniques to relax her face but the cold just ruined it.

Getting your eyes to behave underwater is a very difficult exercise even for someone who feels like a fish so we’ll get better and better each time.
For now, I can only admire what Sara already did, I haven’t got any shots of my eyes underwater and I can imagine there wouldn’t anything to boast about !

my only advice for now is to pretend the sensation is enjoyable and embrace it !
