Underwater photography is a genre of photography that almost everyone loves. But another very interesting sub-genre in underwater photography is ‘Blackwater photography’. Blackwater photography is when the pictures are captured underwater, after the sun sets. This gives the subject of the photo a perfect portrait effect.
Photographer Steven Kovacs is the artist behind this collection of photos. He is self taught and he works off the coast of Florida. Dipping into the dark waters around sunset, Steven navigates into the depths. What he prefers to capture on his camera are miniature creatures who are often translucent. The skilled photographer manages to capture up close photos and they appear so good in the dark background.
Returning to the land, he consults different scientists and specialists to decide the name and the species of the animals he photographed, so he can title the photo when he releases it. His pictures are available at Blue Planet. Also, if you are interested with checking up with his expeditions with daily, personal updates you can follow him on his Instagram profile.
