Behind the Shot: Konrad Malek


Konrad Malek has shared a dramatic underwater shot of a diver in The Pit Cenote in Tulum, Quintana Roo, Mexico on Wetpixel’s Facebook page. The photo got a lot of positive feedback and was shared over 100 times. So we asked Konrad to share with us how he got the shot.

Here’s what he had to say (translated from Polish):

This is one of the first cave photos I have taken. Two days prior to taking this photograph I finished the cave diving course. This was the second day when I could dip in the cave with the camera.

Here are the settings: Sony A7, Samyang 14mm f/2.8, no flash, housing Easydive Leo 3
