Jesper Anhede is no stranger to portraiture or underwater photography. He was kind enough to share this little insight into a special image he shot combining the two skills.
"This was a personal project I wanted to do just to see the result. The setup is super basic. We borrowed a pool with a large glass wall on one side, put a black backdrop in the water and used only the natural light.
My friend Cecilia (the model) is my photographic muse so I always harass her to try out new photo ideas. We basically just exhaled, descended in the water, and took shoots like that for over an over.
The gear I used here is AquaTech DC-5 V3 Sport Housing For Canon 5D Mark III together with a LP-DWZ port for my Canon 24mm f1.4 lens. I am planning to use the images for two purposes, to pitch a commercial gig and to make some kickass canvas for an exhibition.
Afterwards I have been using Adobe Lightroom to correct colors etc, Adobe Photoshop with Oil Paint filter and finally Analog Efex Pro to put on the light effects."
