Navy and Combat Photography
Ben Lewis and Arthur Marquez are combat photographers and they shot while the navy is out and deployed on assignment. There are underwater shots off the coast of Point Loma by Arthur Marquez and Ben Lewis is shooting from a helicopter over Hawaii and San Diego. It was quite an experience looking through their photos and seeing night photography in the desert and seeing the passing of lights in the highway. Working with shutter speed is fascinating in night photography and is surreal when these lights are passing through the night sky.
I have a greater appreciation for seeing what these naval photographers do while on assignment. It gives me lots of anxiety hearing their stories and can’t imagine trying to shoot photography with manual settings. How does one go on assignment and focus on your job while trying to follow the navy go through combat assignments? Sounds extremely stressful, although exciting to the fullest extent. Would like to see more of their stories and experiences through many more documentaries.
