ok - took this pic from Spearfishing.com

How?!?!?!?!?! It's so clear, sharp, PERFECT! am I missing something? photo editor? just wow'd buy the clairity.

I don't think it's just the viz - we have 150ft+ at home and I've never seen pics this sharp.

Any thoughts?

What about the bright spot on the left glove?

Could be a strobe with a real slow film speed and a stopped down shutter. Most strobes get mounted on the left, but who knows?

If it was doctored, wouldn't they fix that are of washout?

Jon, look at the shadow angle in his mask. I don't think they even had a fill flash. :confused: I don't know what's up with the glove? :hmm

Anderson,

If you look at the shadow in the left lens of his mask, the one on his chest form the fish, and the over exposed area on his left glove, I would think that he had a strobe go off on that side of his body.

Then again, it probably was doctored and you know way more about how to do that stuff than I do. :D

My guess is that they were shooting with 4x5 or larger transparency film and had a talented drum scanner who knew his color and how to scan. There is huge difference in color quality when drum scanning transparancy as opposed to slide film.

Can you get a housing for a camera that shoots transparancy film?

Lighting does not look doctored. Maybe they had a buddy shining a video light on the subject. ???

Sweet! :head

Notice the Avanti tre's on the first pic. I think that is what they are, they don;t look like any omer fins that I know. With those small fins that guy had to be in clear and shallow water. THe pic could be doctored but they had to start with a med to good quality first pic.

My experience tells me this:

1) Shot with a wide angle to get close to the subject and used flash with a diffuser over it (Inon 100 w/a lens - digital, or 14-17mm lens on silver based film in housing with dome port)

2) Balanced flash to ambient light to make the water appear as it does

3) Could have been shot on either silver halide based film or 4+ megapixel digital camera in a housing.
