Between Worlds

One of this year’s summer vacation destination was Crete, where i visited Irakleio & Ierapetra. In order to imbue this trip with a more adventurous & colorful essence, i equipped myself with my three cameras, a Panasonic Lumix FT-30 for underwater photography, my typical Sony DSC RX-100 & the recently acquired beast, Canon 7D Mark II. A Canon 50mm f1.8 STM lens was accompanying my 7D Mark II. I got the Lumix just before summer, after realizing that underwater photography could be potentially a new challenge. I’ve never captured something underwater & after checking amazon etc for acquiring an underwater case for 7D Mark II, i realized that the case was more expensive than the camera itself (?!?!). So, i thought “Yes, let’s give it a try!”. And as you will see for yourself, from the photos that follow, yes, underwater photography is a completely different experience! That is due to the rich underwater landscapes,  life & of course the mysterious games of the photons that occur under the surface of the sea.  It is obvious that some images had some features adjusted in order to be the way they are depicted. For the post-processing step, i used Adobe’s Lightroom.
