Mexican social anthropologist and photographer Anuar Patjane Floriuk shares his unique perspective of the seas with his stunning series Underwater Realm. Shot in black and white, his photos expose the beauty that resides underwater. Through these photographs, he hopes that people will gain a greater appreciation for marine life.

Through his work, Patjane Floriuk hopes to inspire change and encourage others to be more mindful of how their actions can impact the ocean. “The ocean is usually presented as an aggressive and unpredictable place, either in movies, books, and even classical paintings, so there is a mostly negative historical construction in our minds of it. If us that know that there is another side of the story happening in the ocean—a peaceful one full of beauty—maybe that can make people wonder and care a little more about the species that inhabit it, and by doing so, begin to take rational actions to counteract our impact, specially in the way we consume plastics and generate CO2 If we don’t share it, who will?”

Black and White Underwater Photos   A creative approach to your underwater photography

Squid and other pelagic invertebrates make excellent black and white subjects. F8, 1/200th, ISO 320, 60mm+1.4x teleconverter, Anilao, Phillipines.

Patjane Floriuk began Underwater Realm in 2012 after observing the deterioration of diving spots around the world, and it’s a series he plans to continue as long as he can dive and explore life underwater. The images are incredible for their demonstration of how man and marine life interact, as well as the natural beauty of the surroundings. Fish form nebulous clouds that appear like contemporary sculpture, while reflections transform a shark into a living light projection.

Black and white photos have always been a favorite form of expression for artists. Without color to distract the viewer, form, lines, and shades can be emphasized. Shooting black and white will place more emphasis on the creative side of your photography, and less emphasis on the technical. Wide angle lenses make the best B&W photos, especially rectilinear lenses that can emphasis lines. Use your own ideas for B&W photos, but here are some ideas for your black and white photography:

Good black and white photos have lots of detail and contrast. F10, 1/160th, ISO 400. nikon d300, Tokina 10-17mm at 10mm.

Converting Color to B&W Use the B&W command in photoshop, under image, adjustments, black and white Alternatively, shoot in Raw and using the convert to grayscale command in Adobe Camera Raw / Lightroom

As an avid diver, Patjane Floriuk has developed a love for the underwater world. Over time, his concern for that world has heightened. “It grows on you, the longer you dive the more you care; and this happens to every person that has been diving for many years,” he tells My Modern Met. “It is inevitable—the life underwater is so intense and energetic that it eventually gets you, grabs you, and won’t ever let you go.”

Keep details in the shadow areas. Frame a composition without any blown highlights. Keep the photo tack sharp and in focus Emphasis details – fill the frame with sharp details and texture Emphasis shape – choose a fish or shark with a well recognized shape Emphasis lines – wrecks are perfect for leading lines Go for the old, grainy look with a high ISO.

Wrecks can work well with this concept. Try to think in black and white before shooting. Imagine what the photo will look like in B&W, find subjects that will best show off the motif you are striving towards.
