SHOOTING WIDE APERTURES UNDERWATER

PREVIOUS / NEXT

UNDERWATER by KRISS on 08 october 2016

The very first lens I put inside my water housing a few months ago was my Sigma 35 f1.4 and why ? Because it was the widest I could accommodate in the lens port I had chosen, a flat port which was a mistake because I have not used it since my dome port and which I will be selling it amongst other things.
Anyways, I haven’t been using the 35mm f1.4 underwater either since the dome port, because then I could accommodate the much wider 16-35mm.

But after much repetitiveness in my underwater photography (practice makes perfect they say) I decided to take the 35mm last week and take it for a dive at f1.4 because this is something I have never tried before !

The results quite surprised me and I actually think this can be an amazing lens in cleaner waters.
Yes it wasn’t the cleanest of days when I used it but still I think the angle, the very little deformation and the sharpness of the lens at f1.4 really sealed the deal for me.


It is one of my favorite lens for certain things, well beyond the 35mm end of the spectrum of the Nikon 16-35mm and maybe will I try it a few more times underwater !

Besides this gives me an opportunity to publish some fishes (including my own special fish which I am sure you’ll identify easily).

I am still lazily working on my last 2 sessions with some friends and will definitely come up with something great !
