The Perfect Underwater Reflection

10 04 2009

I always set out to create unique images, which as any photographer knows, particularly underwater – is easier said than done. To me what sets aside a iconic image from a great image is the uniqueness factor. Sometimes when the opportunity presents itself, the split second decisions you make can create that unique image, and on my expedition to Socorro, I had one of those moments and created the perfect reflection image.


The image is a reflection in a bubble of divers above me getting into the panga. What I particularly enjoy about this image is that you can see the details of the ripples of the ocean surface above and also the snell’s window created by the refraction of light underwater. You can also see the reflection of me and my strobe arms on the near edge of the bubble.
