Doris got some underwater camera gear a bit ago, she’s rented the gear before and done a few shoots, you can see them here.
For the preggers one I did do some minimal assisting, so I *thought* I was reasonably familiar with the whole underwater thing.
Lemme tell you it is WAY different being in front of the camera.
Behind the camera, you’re pretty much focused on one thing: getting the shot. Not that it isn’t hard, you have to keep yourself down in the water and there are other water things to struggle with.
So this “shoot” was a “let’s play with your equipment!” test.
We wanted to test how an umbrella maneuvers in the water, and how a night time shoot would look.
