Over & under

Came across this amazing image by Nat Geo photographer Daniel Botelho who was tasked to get a “urban shark photograph” by his editor. An amazing story of an amazing image.

My own attempts at the over/under shot have met with varying degrees of success. Both shots below were taken with a Sony NEX-5 with a fisheye converter on the 16-mm pancake lens in a Nauticam housing.
