    Underwater Portraits

    Been a bit quiet of late with my postings but not with my photography; however, didn't feel that I had anything worthwhile to post up until now.

    All taken with the Olympus OMD EM-5 with the 60mm macro lenses and twin Sea & Sea YS110A strobes.

    Comments more than welcome

    Lovely set as usual.

    Unusually bright for underwater shots no?

    Nah - just using different lighting technics and strobe positioning. Most of the time I only have about 2 - 4m of visibility in the water with lots of silt and crud (bit like shooting in thick fog) so I have to get close and position the strobes to ensure that I only light up the subject and not the crud in the water

    I expected underwater divers removing their masks and mugging for the camera but still very nice, especially the leatherjacket.
