I helped Johnson Yang with his underwater pool photography on Saturday in Los Angeles. The air temp was 108F degrees so the 89 degree pool seemed cool. I supplied a Nexus 5D and 5DMK2 housing with 20mm lenses. Also used the Nauticam 7D with a Tokina 10-17mm lens. Two Ikelite 160 strobes and one Sea & Sea 120 strobe were in use. Johnson built a unique transom to hold a black black cloth background. Because of the construction of the pool his design worked well. We did some 8 frames per second shots with the 7D and had the Ikelite strobe keeping up with the camera. It fills up the CF card quickly. It was a fun day but really hot even in the shade. Anything left in the sun was too hot to pick up with bare hands. The models did’t complain about the heat and were a lot of fun to work with.
