TIPS ON UNDERWATER PHOTOS

Underwater photography is fun. This is a great way to combine your passion for diving with a love of photography. Just like exploring “ground” photography, underwater photography is a journey that involves learning and experimenting. In the modern digital world, we have a wealth of resources and powerful tools for this genre.
There are no shortcuts in the underwater photo. You need to devote yourself to the learning process and really spend time practicing and improving your skills if you want to develop in the direction of underwater photography. It all starts with shooting technically correct images; with the right exposure, sharp and with a good composition. In addition to technology, you need to learn to express yourself by showing the creative side and how you see the world through the lens.
Composition
Use the good old rule of thirds to achieve a balance in the shots taken, but do not be afraid to try something else. Diagonals are also strong and dynamic! When shooting sea life, try to be at eye level with the subject of the shooting, make the shots most attractive to the viewer. Do not be afraid of negative space, it works well in underwater shooting conditions.
Colors
Shooting underwater is challenging when it comes to color reproduction. If you are shooting only JPEG, initially adjust the white balance correctly on your camera. If you shoot RAW, post-processing will give you more freedom to adjust the colors. The distance to the subject kills the colors under water, so come closer! Using your own light source will also help bring all colors to life.
The internal flash of your camera is limited to underwater use, as it is simply not powerful enough, and frontal lighting is not the best option (it aligns the image and introduces backscatter). The position and angle of the light source can reveal different shapes and textures, so if you are not ready to invest in a special flash, you can always start by experimenting with a flashlight.
Correct camera settings, shooting angle and flash position will allow you to create a black background in the daytime.
Select a subject
The ability to choose a subject is an important skill for the photographer. In addition to searching for an interesting object, you can also choose the one to which you have access. The subject matter does not always have to be a rare fish to generate interest; it may even be something very simple, but shown through a photo in some interesting way.
