Underwater portrait photography. Three words that don’t usually go together. But it’s a niche – and a fun one! We talk to underwater portrait photographer Steffen Binke on: the best locations to shoot underwater portraits; breathing techniques to control buoyancy; techniques Steffen uses to pose and direct his models; hair and makeup for underwater portraits; styling underwater portraits; how he gets spectacular results working with non-models, often doing their very first underwater shoot; how he achieves his amazing poses in such a short time (often 5 seconds or less); lighting techniques and heaps more!
