Underwater Pre-wedding Photography – Crazy and Fun!
Underwater pre-wedding shoot though is tiring, the rewards of seeing the end product is totally beyond words! The surreality of swimming like a mermaid in water is absolutely amazing. As communications is almost nil underwater during the shoot, a lot have to come from the couples themselves. As they tend to rely lesser from the instructions of the photographer and just played along as they would normally (or maybe abnormally!), they will create a totally different front as they were shooting on land. with the lack of gravity, they can just float and fly around in ways that you will never be able to achieve on land!
However swimming like a mermaid is not taken for granted like most couple thought it is. Opening your eyes and smiling as comfortably as you are on land does take some practice. I am glad to have found the trick in getting my couples to do just that. The ease at which they appear in the underwater pre-wedding images were often mistaken as photo manipulated images. However, these were actually our tricks and hard-work that enable the couple to be able to swim and have fun in the water.
However Safety is of the utmost important! having trained Dive master or technical divers around will greatly help reduce the risk of any unforeseen danger. Its just like shooting on the road
with marshals to help in creating a safer environment.
