SECRET REVEALED-How to create underwater effect?

How to create the underwater effect on the image without the sun? We need hard light to capture the shadows of the waves in the studio.


I'm a fan of kombucha especially Remedy Raspberry Lemonade Kombucha, and I thought the waves would work and give a nice, calm but exciting feel to the product.

BTS in the video.


I used a bare studio flash and a 130cm (51") Parabolic white umbrella by Pixapro as fill-light. I had to carefully place the hard light where the reflection will be between the text.

I set up everything before filling the perspex box/tray with water and carefully tossed/moved it.

Have fun, and let me know how it goes.
