Ces photographies à moitié dans l’eau dévoilent la beauté cachée de l’univers sous-marin

On se demande souvent ce qu’il se passe en dessous de nous lorsqu’on a la tête hors de l’eau… Les plongeurs connaissent cette sensation lorsqu’ils enfilent à peine leur masque et qu’une vague arrive… Passer de l’air à l’eau, du soleil à la mer, du connu à l’inconnu… Qu’est ce qu’ils vont découvrir en plongeant leur tête dans l’eau, quels poissons vont-ils croiser, quelle végétation sous-marine vont-ils pouvoir admirer ?

C’est ce qu’a voulu illustrer Matty Smith en choisissant des angles des plus originaux et en se plaçant à moitié dehors à moitié dedans pour des photographies « on ne peut plus réussies ». Alors à quand votre prochaine virée en plongée ?

I had discovered from previous visits to dive this small bay that after strong summer northeast winds hundreds of bluebottle cnidarian are blown in and trapped, they float around the bay on the tides and sometimes clump together in huge rafts. I began planning this shot because knew that the blueness of these animals lights up wonderfully with a strobe and figured the sun would rise somewhere in the background towards the mouth of the bay. I thought that orange and the blue would make a striking shot. It took quite a few early mornings and lots of lighting experiments to make this image, but in the end I’m very happy with it.

Physalia physalis (bluebottle) taken as an over/under image in Bushrangers Bay, NSW Australia. After strong NE winds hundreds of these zooids were blown into the bays around Shellharbour and trapped overnight. Post processing is limited to colour temp and small amounts of burning. Also slightly cropped.
