Underwater Photography-Weightlessness

One of the things that brings more people underwater is the weightlessness feeling, it is an amazing sensation and pleasure that makes you become crazy about diving.

Though you can feel it the very first time you put a BCD on and get underwater either on a scuba discovery course or in the first of you Open Water Diver practices, it is only really experienced when you buoyancy control achieved by a mix of practicing and relaxation status, a kind of underwater Yoga.

I believe this image expresses “Weightlessness” perfectly, the diver is the owner of the diving club I usually go diving with, he was not only controlling completely his buoyancy, but as you can see in the image if you look carefully he had taken his BCD off.

As I approached the mooring line at the end of the dive I found him in this position, just below our boat, with clear blue water, and sun rays entering the water.

The image formed immediately in my mind,luckily I had my Wide Angle lens mounted on, so it was only a matter of achieving the proper illumination, composition and pressing the shutter.

Spanish version

Una de las cosas que atrae a más gente bajo el agua es ingravidez, es una sensación placer increíble que te hace volverte inmediatamente un apasionado del buceo.

Aunque se puede sentir la primera vez que uno se pone un jacket/chaleco entra al agua, ya sea en bautismo de buceo o en la primera de las prácticas del curso Open Water Diver, sólo se experimenta realmente cuando se logra un control de flotabilidad perfecto, combinación de práctica y estado de relajación, una especie de yoga bajo el agua.

Creo que esta imagen expresa la sensación de “Ingravidez” perfectamente, el buceador de la imagen, es el dueño del club de buceo con quien suelo salir a bucear, no sólo estaba controlando por completo su flotabilidad, sino que como se puede ver en la imagen fijándose bien, se había quitado su jacket/chaleco.

Según me acercaba al punto de fondeo, al final de la inmersión, lo encontré en esta posición, justo por debajo de nuestra embarcación, rodeado de agua con un tono azul espectacular, y los rayos del sol entrando en el mar.

La imagen que se formó inmediatamente en mi mente, por suerte llevaba montado mi gran angular montado, por lo que sólo era cuestión de lograr la iluminación adecuada, la composición y pulsar el obturador.

    However Yahoo marketing and other pay per click search engines offer some excellent traffic at a more reasonable price.
    It’s probably some mix of the two, so I have to give him props for not going
    too far in either direction.
