Diving into the deep

Last Friday I went to a beautiful swimming pool in the west of Amsterdam, where we met up with a competition diver to shoot some shots for a commercial. We went up to the highest diving board (10 meters) and set up the camera right near to the edge. It was quite intimidating at first looking into the depth, but when I started concentrating on the shot, looking through the viewfinder, I kind of forgot about the potential danger of plummeting down into the swimming pool, camera and all.. It's funny how looking through a lens can make you forget of whats around you. All the more important to keep that in mind and always remember in what way you can move without hurting yourself or others! 

 

We shot on the Sony FS7 at 150fps, 1080p. 

 

 

Here are some screenshots from the shoot:
