Φωτογραφίες μέσα και έξω από το νερό

Για τον δύτη – φωτογράφο Matty Smith η πιο μαγική στιγμή των εξορμήσεών του είναι όταν βάζει το κεφάλι του μέσα στο και μπορεί να δει ταυτόχρονα κάτω και πάνω από την επιφάνειά του. Η αγωνία για το άγνωστο που θα συναντήσει λίγα εκατοστά παρακάτω είναι αυτό που τον ιντριγκάρει και τον ενέπνευσε να βγάλει αυτή τη σειρά φωτογραφιών που δείχνουν τι συμβαίνει ταυτόχρονα μέσα και έξω από το .

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.

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.
