SEA FALCON DRAIN INCHIKU
Underwater lure photography in the studio with plastic or wooden lures is one challenge but heavy metal jigs are another challenge.
After a fair few test shots, timing the drop versus triggering the camera and strobes…. then cleaning the glass tank again and again and again, I finally nailed the bubble trail of a dropped metal jig and its oct trailer.
Easiest way is to shoot totally in the dark, all lights off and a non reflective velvet back ground, the only illumination is the modelling lights on the strobes. A few drops and this little 70 gram Sea Falcon Drain Inciku contrasting colours and oct trailer just pop amongst the air bubbles.
