Behind The Lens

Location
Isla Guadalupe - MExico
Time
Early in the morning, it is the time of the day when sharks are more active and curious
Lighting
Being at a depth of about 20 meters the real challenge was to balance the ambient light with that of underwater flashes in order to properly illuminate the shark rendering the scene the most tridimensional possible
Equipment
Nikon D600 with sigma 15 mm fiah eye, in Nimar underwater housing and two inon underwater flash
Inspiration
I wanted to relate the shark to the divers, guests in the kingdom of the white shark, a beautiful, delicate and majestic creature, where for once the real beast is enclosed in a cage, guest and spectator of one of the greatest predators in nature
Editing
Especially in photosub the biggest problem is the white balance and the color management, the light in the water behaves in a completely different way, since the post-production process is aimed at bringing the shades back to the most natural possible, it is a job long and delicate
In my camera bag
For underwater photography my travel luggage is 50 kg, it is a mountain of equipment, also dictated by traveling very often in remote locations where spare parts can not be found and where even a simple charger can destroy the trip
Feedback
To have a different point of view you have to think differently and find a different point of view, being able to put together a subject and viewer is the real challenge
