Capturing Underwater
Today my classmates and I visited the back reef for the first time. The reef is an area I can potentially do my research. Our dive master gave us a couple of tasks to complete underwater, one of them is taking pictures. 

As a photographer on land, I thought it would be simple to snap a few shots, but in the water, I am a scuba diver first, photographer second, so I must take into consideration, my dive buddy, air, buoyancy, and finally the picture. 

Taking photographs is one of my favorite ways of storytelling, and today my skills were tested. In total, I completed four dives today, which was a great accomplishment because this is the most dives I have ever done in one day. Here are a few photos from today on land and underwater.
