April 2005 3rd Week
Underwater photography magnifies all of the challenges of creating photos topside. Special cameras, housings, scuba gear, loss of light, color correction and other obstacles all add up to make this endeavor both frustrating and wonderfully rewarding. Walt and Mimi Miller of Ramblin’ Cameras created this surreal image at a depth of 110 feet, in Half Moon Bay, Roatan, Bay islands, Honduras. This image took good communication between the divers, so that the diver was framed perfectly by the giant overhang creating a fine composition. The flash brought out all of the colors of life on the rocks and the diver too.
