So we decided to work on an underwater photoshoot. We also thought we’d make a behind the scenes video for the shoot but with a less common addition. We wanted to add every step of the shoot into the video. It makes for a longer clip although very informative. Most questions should be answered within the video but I’ll try to explain some additional information below.
Some addition info that we’d like to share:
You don’t really need high end gear to make these shots work. Yes we had an underwater kit and yes we did use pro bodies/lenses. However the shots themselves could be recreated with most body/lens combos. Your shoot may not even be underwater, it may be in a desert, and that’s the main focus we’d like you to draw from this BTS. Another thing we wanted to mention is that electricity and water don’t typically mix. We were very cautious with our setup near the pool and made sure there was no chance of anything falling into the water.
Once more I’d like to thank Isaac Levy, Leanna Lee, Amanda Taylor and Paul Bongiovanni for their efforts in this shoot. If anyone has any questions or comments please feel free to ask and we’ll be sure to get back to you. Also, as we err speak… ? type..? yeah type, as I type, Kevin is working on a more in-depth tutorial for editing one of the images. We should be releasing it sometime very soon. In case people were more curious as to how we ended up with our final images. The tutorial will be on the image directly below.
