Interview with Underwater Photographer Dmitry Miroshnikov

Interview with Underwater Photographer Dmitry Miroshnikov

What message do you want to convey in your photographs?

I'm trying to explore the border between reality and surreality. My works are in the same time real (as they are documentory photography) and unreal. I love the works of Rene Magritte and Salvador Dali, and I try to follow their directions in my photographs.

Do you have any new projects that you're working on right now?

I'm going to visit Komodo island (Indonesia) on NY. This island is famous for it's dragons, but underwater it's also a great place with huge biodiversity. I hope to get some nice macro-shots and fisheye ones (I recently added fisheye lens to my equipment, so I want to train with it).

Any advice for our readers?

Never start post-processing the picture with the removal of various defects. There are a lot of them usually in underwater photography, and removing them is a very time-consuming business. You can always do it later. Instead of that, start working on the picture as a whole, think about a composition and color balance on large scale.
