5 Tips for Shoot­ing in Ice­land

Scuba Diving - - Eurosplash -

1 Shoot us­ing nat­u­ral light as much as pos­si­ble, even if this is a chal­lenge.

2 Push the ISO of your cam­era as high as is tol­er­a­ble with­out caus­ing too much “noise.”

3 Lack of con­trast can make it dif­fi­cult to de­pend on aut­o­fo­cus in cold wa­ter. Some­times it sim­ply won’t work, so it’s im­por­tant to al­ways have ac­cess to man­ual fo­cus.

4 Open your hous­ing only in a low-hu­mid­ity en­vi­ron­ment prior to div­ing to pre­vent fog­ging is­sues when sub­merg­ing in cold wa­ter.

5 Find gloves that fit you and al­low you to ac­cess small di­als and but­tons on your hous­ing.
