While on a family trip to Catalina Island, I got the great chance to do some diving using the amazing gear I was gifted by the Sea Rovers Donors. Catalina Island is known for its spectacular kelp forests and rich marine life close to shore, so I was excited to take my first crack at underwater photography in such a spectacular location. For my internship, Sea Rovers internship Sponsor Backscatter loaned me a SONY S1 mirrorless camera in a Nauticam housing.
On our first day we only did one dive, but I chose to take my wide angle lens into order to capture the rich beauty of the kelp forest. Even though it was my first dive ever with an underwater camera, I quickly got used to controlling the camera underwater and managed to get some great shots of the gorgeous kelp forest.
Special thanks to my other sponsor DUI for the amazing BC, and Henderson for the Greenprene wetsuit.
