UPY 2017 British Waters Wide Angle - Highly Commended
'Amphibious helicopter' - Steve Jones
This Wessex Naval helicopter was purposely sunk at the National Diving and Activity Centre in Chepstow and being such a photogenic wreck it is an excellent location to practice photography and lighting skills. Remote strobe was used for this shot, with my own strobe triggering one attached to the diver via a remote sensor. The important thing was to get the angle of the beam correct and my buddy, Terry Ayling’s arm helps diffuse the strobe beam preventing it from overpowering the image. The wreck lies at 25 metres.
Judge's comment: Alex Mustard: The composition produces a dynamic image and the off-camera strobe draws you in. Fine work.
