How a robot is helping photographers take the perfect underwater shot at the Olympics
There’s a majestic quality about underwater photography that is incredible to look at, especially out of this year’s Olympics games in Rio. To capture the moment, Getty Images is employing the help of a robot to guide them to the perfect shot. Sports photographer Al Bello has shot 11 Olympic games, but 2016 is the first year he’s using a robot to help photograph aquatic events, including swimming, diving, and synchronized diving. Traditionally, photographers would set up a static remote camera and push the trigger when they’re ready to take the shot. This required framing the image ahead of time and hoping the timing works out right.
