5 Tips for Shooting in Iceland
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.
