Take the plunge for different shots
IN all the aspects of photography I’ve done, one that is yet to be conquered was underwater photography.
The reason for this is underwater housings for cameras are expensive and it was something a little scary.
However, just before we got all the rain a couple of weeks ago, I had one ordered and delivered, just before it started raining.
At the next high tide, Cudgen Creek was looking amazing so decided to go for a dip and capture some underwater imagery.
After having dived quite a lot a few years ago, I really now wanted to be able to capture the plethora of life under the waves, which make for some great subjects.
This image is one of a number I took on the day trying the housing out and happy with the initial results.
You will be seeing more underwater as Cook Island and some other great destinations are calling.
Settings for this image were ISO320, f/7.1 and 1/500 shutter speed.
Having a underwater casing for your camera allows you to capture a whole new world beneath the waves.
