How to start with Underwater Photography

On 07/05/2020 by Kris Trondsen

Are you looking into how to start with Underwater Photography or do you already have some experience and want to improve your skills? Here are some insights to help you with your underwater photography experience. 

This blog will touch on: 

  • Understanding the basics

  • How to choose your first camera

  • Why attending an underwater photography course might be the right thing to do for you!

Understanding the basics

When it comes to taking good photos underwater it is important that we understand some of the basics of underwater photography. This comes down to how water affects the light that we have to work with and our composition.

Light

There are two effects that water has on light that is important to understand. Firstly, since water is more dense than air, light does not travel as well in water. The result of this is that the deeper you go, the darker the environment you have to work with becomes. In fact 50% of the light from the sun is reflected at the surface of the water. 

Loss of light

Secondly, the lack of natural light results at a “change” of colours with depth. This will cause a significant loss in certain colours. The first one to diminish would be the red one, while the blue and the green will pop up. Something you might have noticed when going scuba diving.

Loss of color

Composition

When taking a photo it’s not only about having enough light, but also knowing how to compose it as well. It is the way you design how and where you put your subject (marine life) in the frame, as well as what to have in the background and foreground. For example, if you are taking a photo of a fish you should choose a simple background so that your subject can be in the centre of attention, rather than having it in front of a crowded background with other objects with similar colours.

Rule of thirds

How to choose your first camera?

Choosing what camera to get can be a difficult task. You will often find yourself using the price as a reference to quality, but it doesn’t necessarily guarantee you the best suited camera for your level. Getting an expensive, high-end camera will no doubt give you a powerful solution. On the other hand, in order to be able to fully utilize its potential, you need to get familiar with all features and details. A more budget-friendly, point-and-shoot camera will do most of the job for you when it comes to settings and colour balance. This will allow you to spend less time fiddling with it, and more time to enjoy the time and capture what you see.

Most action cameras nowadays have a very high quality in both video and photo mode, and rarely come with any extra costs in regards to underwater camera housings.

Up your skills with an Underwater photography course!

Regardless of your photography experience, taking part in an underwater photography course gives you the opportunity to get hands-on experience with different cameras and techniques, with a professional underwater photographer. What you can expect from a general course of underwater photography would be: 

  • A theoretical part, where you go through the basics of photography as well as a breakdown of different types of cameras and functions. 

  • A practical part, where what you have learnt is put into practice in the open water. You will receive precious feedback, and in some cases separate lessons on post-production of the images.

After attending such a course, you will be equipped with a better understanding and knowledge to take photos that convey the feeling that you get when you experience marine life yourself.

    Always read up on a video game title before you invest your hard-earned money in it! It can be tough to wade through the sea of biased reviews that spring up around any popular video game, but you may uncover important information that has an impact on your buying decision. Have a little patience and figure out if the game in question is really worth your time and money.

    If you are concerned with anyone in your home doing too much sedentary video gaming time, get them to include more active video gaming hours. Hardware and titles now exist where video gamers can play various sports, dance, practice balance and agility and even strength train. These all make for good activity on rainy or dark days.

    Be especially careful about guarding your personal information in the realm of online video games. Popular games make popular targets for hackers and scammers. Never give out login info or personal data to other players. It's a good idea to use a unique username and password for games and game services; don't re-use login information from your email or other online accounts.

    Try to restrain your major gaming to only one kind of machine. Buying all the major consoles plus a gaming-worthy personal computer can cost up to thousands, just in hardware. Yet, most big titles will be available on almost all of them. Choose one platform to stick with for savings.

    Keep your console or computer cool. Whether you game on one of the major consoles or on your home computer, heat is the enemy of every system. The complex graphics in today's game cause the video cards and processors in gaming systems to run at very high temperatures, and when this heat builds up too high, it can lead to failure. Always keep your system in a location where air circulate around it, and never cover the fan ports.

    There, don't you feel like you know a ton about being a better gamer now? All it takes to learn is a little effort on your part, and you'll find that knowledge goes a long way. Keep learning, keep playing and you'll find that your gaming becomes better day by day.
