This has to be the most interesting thing I have seen in a long time. This idea, created by Sue Austin, was for the 2012 Cultural Olympiad in which she, in her self-propelled underwater wheel chair, explored the underwater world in order to generate a widespread public debate about the nature and value of contemporary arts practice shaped by the experience of disability.
For over a year and a half now, David Reynolds has been filming his "budget" series of short films called The Underwater Realm. Each week he and his team release a behind the scenes video on how they overcome some technical aspect of filming (previous Fstoppers posts here). This week Eve explains how he tackled the challenge of making a small diving pool appear like an infinite ocean using something other than green screen. If this is what is required on a...
Every so often you come across a photo, stare and then boldly exclaim, "I will photograph that someday!" For instance my photography bucket list has on it shooting the Holi Festival in India, Pingxi Lanterns in Taiwan, La Tomatina in Spain and just recently I added light painting with the spectacular Bioluminescent plankton that emit a bright glowing blue color in the ocean water.
Elena Kalis's underwater photos are incredible. I have seen many photographers try this and it just never seems to turn out right. There is always something about the shots I wont like but that could easily just be me being picky. However, when it come to Elena Kalis's underwater photography, I cant look away.
Apparently already preparing for Halloween, Ben Von Wong put together a photoshoot that created surreal looking demons. This video goes in depth with how he suspended his Nikon D4 over water, did makeup on the models, and illuminated them with black lights. The results are very striking, check the full post for some of his images, and some behind the scenes stills.
One thing I love about the Gopro Hero 2 cameras is that normal, everyday people can record amazing footage that has never been seen before. Such is the case with Mark Peters who thought he was just going to film some albacore tuna during his fishing trip. Little did Mark know what his GoPro would capture inside his homemade underwater torpedo.
Emma is a 14-foot long tiger shark living in the Bahamas. And she steals expensive cameras. While a film crew was shooting a documentary called Shark Obsession, Emma swiped $15,000 worth of equipment. Fortunately, she dropped the 30 pounds of gear soon after and it remained undamaged. Unfortunately, her camera wasn't rolling at the time.
There's a feeling of quietness about South Australian photographer, Narelle Autio's series, Water hole. Using a couple of old orange Nikonos film cameras, a 20 mm lens, and no breathing apparatus other than her lungs, Autio captured some pretty incredible images during her travels in the outback.
Their scientific name? Nudibranchs. These tiny creatures can be found on the ocean floor. Most of them are no bigger than a human index finger, and live fully exposed their entire lives. In these photographs taken by acclaimed underwater Photographer David Doubilet, these sea slugs look almost like meticulously crafted Play-Doh creations. The bright coloring is actually an act of beautiful self defense.
Join the MacGillivrays of One World One Ocean as they take you under the sea and into 'inner space' to document NASA's NEEMO 16 mission (NASA Extreme Environment Mission Operations). Aquanauts are sent to Aquarius (the world's only undersea laboratory) to live underwater for two weeks which can simulate living on a space station.
Zak Noyle is one of the world's most respected surf photographers, and in this two-part documentary by RedBull, we get a fascinating glimpse into his world. From his photographic mission and technique to the training that he undergoes to be able to stay afloat in some of the world's largest surf, this mini-doc has it all. Filmed around the world in exotic locations
Howdy everyone and welcome to the Wednesday Rundown. This week Albert Manduca shows us how he gets it done in the studio with two beautiful models. We also have a great psychology concept shoot that was executed underwater. If you have a great and informative video you want to see in the Wednesday Rundown please shoot me an email email@example.com .
Adam Taylor is a very talented photographer that I have followed here and there for the past few years. His portfolio has really grown as he has created some fantastic work in his campaign portfolio. But what I really like is the mystery that he brings to the table in his landscape photography. I love the muted tones and dark feel of most of these images. Enjoy!
