Take a deep dive behind-the-scenes of an underwater photoshoot in this 360-degree video by celestial sphere filmmaker Watanabe-Ka.
The interactive video was filmed during Koga Manabu’s bikini stocking-themed photoshoots last summer with the photos later released as part of a photobook collection and exhibition in 2015.
Skimpy models aside, the video demonstrates the educational potential of 360 when applied to photography tutorials.
The photos have become so popular in Japan that a monthly Underwater Knee-High Girls magazine featuring additional behind-the-scenes tidbits was launched earlier this month (January 2016).
This isn’t the first time we featured Koga Manabu’s work on Bokeh, read An Underwater Photographer Was Hired To Shoot This Otherworldly Commercial to find out how he made models appear as if they were floating in anti-gravity!
