LONG EXPOSURE PART SUCCESS

UNDERWATER by KRISS on 26 december 2016

It’s been on my mind for a few weeks now : Why wouldn’t I shoot some long exposure photograph from somewhere in the sea ? It surely is making things complicated, perhaps not many people have bothered trying to do so (except a friend of mine in Brazil whose Instagram account shows me he seems to follow a similar pattern to mine as regards to underwater photography).

I decided last week was the right time to fool around and make trials and errors again !

So it was fairly easy, except that what I wanted to have in my foreground was on a very rocky beach.

You can tell from the pictures how the camera housing is mounted on a tripod and how bloody difficult it can get changing legs height and orientation once in the water.
It is ! I have no head on which I can screw the housing and I wouldn’t risk a ball head in salt water anyways.

So the setting was :

- a tripod.
- a camera inside a water housing on the tripod.
- a bag with rocks in it to secure the stability of the system.

It kind of worked but there was some swell and I never managed to get the dome at the right angle and the right depth to get a split.
As a result the photograph I have taken could have been taken from the shore with less fuss and more everything… except perhaps fun !

Because after all, I am doing that because I freaking love it ! And with nature’s help I intend to trial and error and succeed eventually !
