Mexico Trip, Pictures from Water
We bought a few funsavers (disposable 35mm cameras that scratch (and
underexpose) 800 asa film). The results from all three cameras were
terrible, but I thought I'd show at least a few pictures.
Above the water
The little cameras come with a strap and don't seem to mind the pounding
surf. The first picture is Wyatt Bogie boarding in the surf in front
of the resort. We often went, but we only brought the camera once.
The resort is in the background. The second shot is in the mariates
islands - I'm getting thrown around in the wash and thankfully the water
was come through the arch, not sucking into it. We shot lots pictures
in the clear water here but very few had sufficent contrast to be useful.
Above water flare is very bad.
People In Water
The only mamal we saw large enough to shoot were these large white air
breathers. I like the shot of Mark, the color contrast is sufficent
to draw you in. I like the composition of Chris but there is too
much glow from the bubbles in the water and it's just not sharp.
Considering I'm shooting from below, I was surprised it didn't turn into
Fish are designed to blend in and they do that quite well. Using
low contrast film, plastic optics, and shaking the camera, the pic's aren't
