My first underwater photographic experience

Now, as the summer is almost over, I feel like I did not waist any time taking into consideration my increased number of accepted uploads, as well as the increasing sales. But I feel much more satisfied with the fact that I had the opportunity to test some new photographic techniques … and the one that got to me the most was the underwater experience.

I had my vacation plans all worked out few months ago and knowing I’ll visit the beaches of Greece, famous for their clear waters I had to go and buy an underwater DSLR case.

And wouldn’t you know it … it works great … I mean, I did have some difficulties adjusting my camera settings and learning to work with the case, but in the end I was very satisfied with the results … the only regret I have is that my vacation did not last as long as I would have wanted … I can hardly wait for my next one … until then I’ll do some work at the pool with some “swimmer” ideas that I have.

Hope you guys like these few pics I managed to upload … and if there’s someone who reads this little piece of article who’s got more experience with underwater photography, I’m waiting for your advice regarding the technique!

Thanks and see you soon!

No, not planning to mount it on a board but swim in the surf with it. Take photos of surfers catching waves. The big question for me now is if it will be robust enough.

Hi, these photos look great. Did you experience any misting problems? Do you think you could use this housing in the surf for surfing action photograhs? Last of all, whats the price?

Hi Andrei, first I read your blog title wrong, I thought it was underwear photographs, :-))
Hey I liked the blue plunge image, blue freedom. It would have been great if these two combination was in one image.
Well great image, now you are the teacher for us, better write another big blog about how you set the camera and all the details. That might be useful for us.
