Bobbing around in the sea with my submarine and rubber ring.
There is nothing better on a sunny day than running down to the sea in your swimmers and bobbing around the waves on a rubber ring. After that initial cold water induction, using either the wash method – whereby you scoop up water and rub it on your limbs to help adjust your body to the cool waters. Or the mad dash (adopted mostly by children) where you run hell for leather towards the fishes ignoring all shells or pebbles at your feet.
In calmer seas you can just chill out in your ring soaking up the sun and relaxing. But in choppier waters enjoy the breaking waves and likely hood that you’ll go head over bum and pop your rubber ring.
Now to capture those memories with some underwater housing! I went for the Fisheye Submarine and for my first attempt, got some unexpected results. The water was a little murky and I mainly got snaps of strange light shapes and shaky rubber rings but of course it’s a Lomography rule to embrace the unanticipated.
If you love summer, the beach and your LC-A like I do, you MUST have a Krab Underwater Housing! Don't worry if you don't exactly swim and dive like a fish... it is called Krab for a reason, it works in both land and sea!
Shake well and apply to fabric. Blot out excess using a paper towel. Create your design using Inkofilm or anything that casts a shadow. Expose to sunlight or bright UV light for 10-20 minutes or until color reaches full saturation. Machine wash using Inkowash to remove unexposed dye. Double your exposure time in overcast weather. Enjoy the "wow" result!
