Light and Time

On most occasions the underwater photographer can choose subjects and shoot in any particular direction they wish, i.e. from the front, the back, the side, etc. However, in wreck photography the ship is positioned where it's positioned — where it came to rest on the bottom — there will be some compositional angles of view which are more photogenic than others. If you shoot these angles at various times of the day you will get far different results, which will affect the overall look and quality of the picture. The reason for this is all to do with the position of the sun in the sky.

FIG. 9.45 F6.7 at 1/60th sec, ISO 100, 10.5 mm fisheye lens. Fig. 9.45 and Fig. 9.46 show good examples of how the position of the sun can alter the appearance of an idea. This bow shot of the Giannis D. Fig. 9.44 was taken at 7.00am, month of June in the northern Red Sea. This figure was taken 8 hours later at 3pm with the sun directly behind my back shining onto the structure of the bow.
