Dutch Underwater Photographer Karin Brussaard and the Sharks

You don’t just shoot this on your own, alone, you gotta work as a team with your fellow divers, or you can easily be casual breakfast for the tiger shark you came to visit.

Karin Brussaard posted the first of a series of her articles describing her once-in-a-lifetime photography adventure of shooting sharks without a cage at PopPhoto.com. Using a Nikon D80 enclosed in a Sea & Sea underwater housing, Karin captured amazing photos of free-swimming sharks in the Bahamas.

Karin wrote, “Underwater photography is in many ways much more difficult than land-based photography. Colors disappear as you descend, there is less light, your are limited in time submerged, there can be strong currents, you cannot use a telephoto lens and you have to come really close to your subject to get good pictures. And remember the advice I found out about diving with Tiger sharks?”
