Underwater world is magnificent, enigmatic and powerful. And thanks to underwater photography and videography nowadays it’s possible to admire this world on the screen of a laptop, in art galleries or scrolling through photos on the phone.
You take a deep breath and dive into the unknown – underwater where your mind is filled in with beautiful sounds of Universe, silence. Underwater it feels like gravity doesn’t exist, you just relax and move with the flow. You try to touch the water, but it sleeps away. You try to find the edge of the ocean, but it’s far beyond your reach.
Underwater photography for me is a chance to show this divine, speechless, but emotional world. Where every bubble, every pattern on the water surface, every fish and coral co-exist in harmony, complementing each other and creating a remarkable symphony called underwater life.
Despite the silence underwater everything is constantly moving, even a tiny grain of sand doesn’t stay long on one spot. Sea current makes it travel around the bottom of different oceans.
Inhale, exhale and jump, there, underwater you will face a different reality that will make you wonder why you haven’t explored this world earlier.
As an underwater photographer in Cancun, Riviera Maya, Cozumel and Isla Mujeres I have a constant possibility to explore and photograph this beautiful world beneath the water surface. And I welcome you to join me for an extreme and beautiful underwater photo session.
Underwater photographer in Cancun.
As an underwater photographer in Cancun I had many opportunities to see its divine beauty underwater. Every time I am there, swimming, observing and taking underwater photos I feel extremely happy. There is always something new and fascinating to discover. Life underwater is always moving and changing, but what makes it different from the life above it is that it’s balanced and everything is functioning in harmony. There is no rush, only floating in time.
To become an underwater photographer requires a special equipment. For my underwater photo sessions in Cancun, Isla Mujeres, Cozumel and in cenotes I use Nikon photo camera, lenses and professional Ikelite underwater equipment. All together they allow me to create hi-end digital photos that are possible to print in a big format.
In order to do a successful underwater photo shoot, you need first a detailed plan, which requires knowing the location. Also, a lot depends on what kind of underwater photos you are planning to take. Either it will be photos of just an underwater life (fishes, corrals, plants, etc.) or it will be a photo session with models. On a stage of planning a photo session with the underwater photographer it’s necessary to find out where is better to swim and dive. And don’t forget about the weather forecast, which will show you what the weather might be on a chosen day. If you plan to take underwater photos in the sea with models, it’s better to find a location with less waves, because the less is the movement in the sea the easier it’s for models to stay in the water.
These are just some examples showing what is possible to do during underwater photo session in the sea. Underwater photographer in Cancun, Isla Mujeres and Cozumel – Elena Fedorova.
