No housing needed - underwater studio update

From: Alan K.
Sent on: Monday, June 14, 2010 8:57 AM

 5 Underwater windows allow you to use your own camera without a housing.  A strobe and slave  can shine through 2 different windows while you shoot through a third.  Your focus needs to be on manual as the speed as the transition from air /lexan/water will confuse your camera.  You should consider a tripod for your camera, flash or slaves.  A fabric hood extending from around the windows to your camera will help you avoid reflections on the lexan.

For ideas consider the shots in these lists.

This studio is originally designed as a stroke analysis clinic for competitive swimmers and is operated by a nonprofit.  This Saturday we need to shoot an amphibious vehicle in the pool and we need photographers and models for this.  A Sergent and Captain from the VA is going to visit to try to get the VA more involved and it would be great if they can see some use of this studio.  This Saturday will be a free event, however we will consider photographers that make a donation to the nonprofit or models that volunteer their time first.  Our wounded warrior project will lead to a photo shoot in the Virgin Islands and we will need photographers and models for that.

If you can come by this Saturday for a model or photographer orientation at 2 pm please email me as I will max this out at 8.  If you have other availability, email me at [address removed]
