Yemaya and I shooting in the Monterey Bay Aquarium
Provided by the artist - Wayne Martin Belger
4x5 inch underwater pinhole camera made from Aluminum, Titanium, Brass, Acrylic and Sea creatures. First photo I ever shot with Yemaya was off the coast of California. I photographed "The Valiant", a ship that sunk 80 years ago, that was 105 feet deep and a quarter mile off the coast. Because the light was so limited, the exposure time was an hour and a half. I had to come up in the middle of the shoot to get an other tank of air, then go back down to end the exposure.
