Underwater Bellydance

November 16th, 2012 Leave a comment Go to comments

I love doing underwater photoshoots – always a challenge but the results are worth it! Here are some photos from a recent shoot with Vancouver dancer and model Mahafsoun. The very cool makeup was done by Gun Street Girl Makeup.

On a technical note – I used a Canon G9 camera with the WP-DC21 underwater housing, which allows me to use all the camera’s controls while underwater. It’s a popular camera for scuba divers too! It’s a little daunting to submerge the camera for the first time and hope that there are no leaks. So far, the housing has kept my camera safe and dry. For my next underwater shoot, I’m going to use an Olympus E-PL1 with the PT-EP01 underwater housing. I’m looking forward to testing it out!

Check out my previous underwater photoshoot for more photos and here are some tips for doing underwater photoshoots.

    Interesting. Is there much difference between this and synchronized swimming?
