Dive with Elena Kalis Breathtaking Underwater Photography

by . November 5th, 2014

Elena Kalis is an underwater photographer based in the Bahamas. Elena took up photography 6 years ago as a new way of expressing herself. She’s now living on a small tropical island spending her time in and under the water where she can experiment with her camera.

Before she got into photography, Elena was a traditional artist and used brushes and paint on canvas. Then digital camera and software offered her huge opportunities for new images that were previously impossible to produce.

Elena Kalis was attracted to do underwater photography because the environment of the underwater world is fascinating to explore.

“The dreamlike weightless atmosphere allows for al kinds of setups that are impossible out of the water.”
