Inside My Digicam Bag | Anna Candy



I studied trend pictures on the New York College of Visible Arts in Manhattan however fell into underwater pictures whereas working for Rankin Company in London. I’ve been capturing underwater for about 10 years now and I primarily {photograph} ladies underwater with my work showcased in a number of galleries across the nation. With reference to my gear, I’ve little or no expertise with regards to understanding the technical aspect. I’ll primarily lean on B & H’s helpline after I must know what the most effective digital camera is for what I do. I began capturing with a Canon level and shoot in low cost underwater housing. I believe the setup value me not more than $700. Now I shoot with the most effective for underwater pictures (says B&H) a Canon 5Ds Mark II. I like this digital camera as a result of it permits me to shoot in low mild with excessive speeds with little fringing. It additionally permits me to scale my images very giant. I’ve printed as giant as a complete foyer wall in a constructing! The lens that I’ve discovered to be finest for underwater is the Canon 24mm f/1.4L II USM.  You might want to be near your topic for high quality with minimal distortion and this lens actually delivers. I solely ever use pure mild when capturing and all the pieces will get thrown into my dive bag. Following a shoot, I at all times course of in Lightroom, and Photoshop is my finest pal. I at all times have Benadryl and vinegar available for pesky stings plus reef-safe sunscreen and a leave-in conditioner. I put on a diving cap to guard my hair from my goggles and I at all times have defog and further batteries available. For the fashions, I’ll have nipple pasties and nude underwear! Whereas I would like the nude look there are occasions when it’s troublesome capturing in public areas like common dive websites. If you’re going to get into underwater pictures, begin small and get conversant in your environment. Don’t carry a ton of drugs and be ready for the worst. At all times be on guard and at all times take a look at your housing for leaks! I flooded a digital camera as soon as and I’ll by no means do it once more! | @iamannasweet
