A freediver sits at an office table under the ice of Tver quarry. The underwater world of the quarry is poor, so divers had brought there a lot of stuff to have something at the bottom to look at and make their dives more interesting.
Water temperature: 3C
Temperature on surface: -15C
Camera settings and equipment: Nikon D3S, Subal housing, 2 Ikelite strobes DS160, Nikkor 16 mm / 2.8 fisheye, f9, 1/100, ISO 800.
This is Tver Quarry near the city of Tver, Russia.
The Nikon company is working on educational spot with Viktor and they needed some underwater scene. The closest site with water transparent enough was Tver Quarry.
Viktor had found this was a great opportunity to test his new Nikon D4s in his new Subal housing
and asked freediver Igor Azhykin to come over and be his model.
Now you see the result.
