Breathing Underwater

Back in the 1980’s I started shooting film underwater with a Minolta Maxxum Film Camera sealed in an Ikelite housing.

The world is changing. If you don’t adapt, you’re screwed. This black Swallowtail Butterfly emerged from it’s chrysalis at about the same time that I converted to shooting mirrorless APS-C everywhere but in the studio. Macro. Fuji XT-2. Wildlife in the backyard.
