There have been and are many images of the oceans’ rolling waves, Usually they are captured with a wide angle lens. You are able to experience the total environment. However, I am suggesting that the artist’s emotional goal may get lost in the photograph’s surroundings. Perhaps, that is the reason so many of us shoot photographs close up and personal. Perhaps, that might have justified the invention of the macro lens:) For me, as I got very personal with the waves, I can feel the undulations, the rhythmic movements … I find it so soothing and relaxing. What do you think? I would welcome your feedback 🙂
Nancy, the scuba diver on our team, took these two portraits in Guadalupe. In talking to Nancy about sharks, she will ardently tell you that sharks are not the evil aggressive creatures that they are made out to be. They are only aggressive when provoked. In terms of portraits, it is generally accepted that the photograph is far more intimate when the subject … human as well as non-human … is looking directly into the camera. Do you ‘feel’ this Great Whites’ presence? Does he intimidate you or do you appreciate him? I think he is smiling at me 🙂
Feel free to contact Nancy about these images or any of her other underwater art.
