Loganlea, Logan City
General location: Australia, South-East Queensland

The Setup:

I haven't been able to think of any good made-up stories for these last few photos. If you can think of one, do let me know!

Mark invited us over for a swim. Seeing the photos from this underwater camera, I can point out a few things:

  • Don't shoot into the light - flare

  • Don't shoot away from the light - too contrasty

  • Don't shoot in the shadow - not enough light

  • Don't shoot in the water - not enough light

I choose to see it as a challenge.

The camera & lens:

Camera: USB Camera
@ 647/100mm
Exposure: 1/1000" @ f/3/1, ISO 100

Post processing:

Lightroom - ...

The wash-up:

Maybe bought a proper underwater camera.
