Underwater Fashion/Maternity: E-3 + 14-54mm
Feb 22, 2013

Hi All,

Haven't shared many images here lately but thought I'd drop by and share some from my recent underwater maternity shoot (well, combination maternity + fashion).  All images may not be safe for work as they include a pregnant woman in bikini.

This is a very niche corner of photography, some don't like it, many love it.  Either way, it's very fun, and very unique.

All images shot with the E-3, 14-54mm, Ikelite housing and a single DS125 strobe.  I attempted to trigger a set of off-camera umbrellas above-water in slave, but it turns out the water surface refracts the light pretty well, and it's difficult to reliably trigger with a single underwater strobe at the given angles.  I'm looking into a long sync cable to solve this, as I'd love to be able to light from the top surface and shoot at f/16-f/22 underwater for a completely different effect.

Images in reply.
