In the Distance

This is an effective way to add a sense of scale to an existing scene. Try and separate your model from any distracting clutter in the background, surrounding them with water is ideal. Achieve this by obtaining a low viewpoint and shooting up into mid water.

Whether you choose a vertical or horizontal format, remember composition and the rule of thirds. In this way you direct the viewers' attention to your secondary point of interest.

Think about pressing the shutter when they are exhaling. Bubbles create further interest and the contrast in tone between their sunlit bubbles and the blue water background adds to the impact. Instead of just hanging out in the blue, have them fin slowly through the frame. A finning pose is a dynamic pose which creates a sense of movement and energy. In my own work I now try to avoid shooting them just motionless in the water. It lacks impact!
