Our good friends over at Magic Filters have officially released their new instructional DVD, “Shooting Magic” (available immediately). The DVD was filmed and produced by Peter Rowlands and follows underwater photographer Alex Mustard over 6 dives in the Red Sea, 3 shooting with his DSLR and 3 with his compact camera. Alex demonstrates and describes the techniques he is using and the considerations, both technical and artistic, that go into producing stunning available light photographs with Magic filters.
Mustard writes, “The DVD covers white balancing, subject selection, approach, exposure, composition, why you need a filter, etc. An important feature is that after each dive, we do a review of the shots and discuss in detail why some have worked and others have not. It gives you an idea of what you can expect to achieve in similar conditions. You will see all the shots, both good and bad, unadjusted straight from the camera…”
