Water Lifestyle Photography - This entire section is:
By the water – Shooting just over the water - In the water - Over/Under the water Lifestyle Imagery

In the water lifestyle imagery, shooting just over the water lifestyle imagery and over/under lifestyle imagery is difficult, but it is still lifestyle imagery. But now were all in the water together. I really enjoy shooting this type of lifestyle couple imagery.

When on the east coast I only shoot these at sunrise to get this light as, generally speaking, it's rare to have bad weather early in the morning, although it has happened. During the day, the weather changes for the worse when the heat causes thermals to pull the warm and moist air into the upper atmosphere, causing rain, wind and lightning.

Typically, with anything shot on the east coast ocean, we'll get to the location about 45-50 minutes before sunrise. The advantage of the pre-dawn meeting is we can say hello & the 2 models can get to know each other. I'll also look at the swimwear the models have brought to choose what I want them to wear. In this early morning meeting, I'll remind them that this is a boy/girl lifestyle shoot and being close is necessary, and "close" really means touching... as much as possible.

I'll want to be in the water about 30 minutes before sunrise as this can give us pretty light too. Not always, but if there are clouds scattered about the likelihood is greatly increased. Frequently there will be some level of cloud cover on the horizon and if there is any color associated with the sunrise, the predawn light can be stunning.

Physically and mentally this is the most demanding type of photography I shoot. A normal camera/lens combination will weigh about 4-5 pounds (1.8 to 2.26 KG). But now I need to add the weight of the housing with the 9" diameter mineral glass dome port (22.9 CM) and the 45° finder come in at about 15 pounds. So I have to hold 19-20 pounds (6.8-7.26 KG) of camera and housing out in front of me and mostly the housing is out of the water.

Additionally:
1 - You need to constantly look for water droplets running down the dome port if a wave breaks over you.
2 - I'm adjusting for the changing light levels due to a changing cloud cover. And the exposure will change from 20 minutes before sunrise to sunrise and for the next 15 to 20 minutes after sunrise the light levels will increase, unless clouds move in front of the sun, which happens a lot in humid conditions.
3 - Plus if there are large waves, we are bobbing up and down and loosing contact with the sand below and now drifting, usually apart of each other. This drifting means frequently I have to move back to where I was to keep the same background.
4 - Then there is also the need to be aware of a rip tide, which I have had happen once.
5 - I'm still needing to look at and directing the model(s).
