Hi thought i'd give you a little before & after photo edit example.
SOOC = Straight out of camera.
I just used a small waterproof compact camera to capture this piece of floating carrier bag. As you can see there is a small piece of seaweed actually growing on it.. which while plastic pollution is causing catastrophic damage to our oceans.. i thought that this represents nature in all her glory..
It's heartbreaking while also encouraging! Maybe once we have cleaned up our oceans, nature will recover quicker than we actually realize. Life will go on. If we can prevent ocean acidification and stop rising temperatures.. maybe our oceans do have a chance to again flourish.
This shot proved tricky with my waterproof compact point and shoot because the focus seemed to take what felt like FOREVER.. and as the ocean is continually moving.. well you can imagine! But i'm happy i documented this, this was taken just off our UK Anglesey coastline, the Irish Sea.
This image was edited from JPEG and not RAW. So just a small example of what you can achieve with just a regular basic waterproof compact point and shoot camera if you have some editing software.
