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.


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


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. 

So are you ready to start or continue your underwater photography training? Check out our Underwater Photography course, now also available online, please contact us if you would like more information!

    Interview nathan haas an excellent story about this one.

    I wrote about the previous story this week, 'Locked up in a room with the world's largest machine'. But you should read that story, then scroll down to this story. It's an excellent read. The'machine' itself was called a 'toy' to allow the author to explore his ideas – this toy is really amazing.

    So I should add something to what my previous post on this story stated. My experience of trying to read an ebook is different to the reader's experience reading a novel.

    I write novels, as I write an ebook, my attention is drawn towards the end of the book, I'm still focusing on the story (of the book) but it's much more focused on the 'pulse', the story, and so I'm not that immersed in the story.

    This is something the reader should focus on as the journey in 'Toys' is different to that which comes with reading a novel, but I know that many people seem to ignore that fact and write novels without the same focus on the 'pulse' or the'story' as I do. But that's not the reason I write novel.

    I'm writing novels for other reasons. This journey is different to reading a novel for a number of reasons too. I know that when I write novels, my attention is drawn towards the beginning of the story, which is much less focused on the story. I'm also not immersed in the story in that same way as when I read a novel.

    When I am reading a novel there's a feeling of completion, and as the story continues you realise that you have to finish it – this is not true with 'Toys'. The more you continue with this story, and the more you realise there are several different stories which have to be told, the more it will become a game. I write novels to understand the different worlds I will have to explore within it.

    My books have three parts. The first part is called 'The journey, part one'. This is the journey. It's a series of stories telling me about the 'toys' which I am constructing within this world. As I write a novel, I will usually begin the story with the 'world's first robot'. As I continue, the story will expand to include the machines I have built, and the stories are developed. When I finished the first robot story I decided I needed a second robot – this second robot I constructed is in fact a 'tool' which I use to work.

    I write those three parts of the 'world's first robot' every week. I have started with my 'world's first robot' story every Sunday

    No rent no mortage how house sitters make a living travelling and staying on these flights I thought they were just a bunch of people getting a living."

    It was only because she saw them in front of her eyes she decided to go and ask for help and a friend to show her the house.

    "I started reading all about the people who had died there and how they had had to move in to replace all these other families with their relatives as far away as England or the USA. We looked at the walls on both sides of the hallway and saw no traces of any family living in them. They were all made for the next-door neighbours who were there and so there's no possibility of any more families moving in."

    She was then invited to the house by her friends who moved in shortly after her.

    "And they actually invited me to stay for three or four nights and had this wonderful meal and wine and dinner.

    "I didn't have many friends that were in England at the time. I met these young boys called Bill, Robert and David and Robert became the youngest son in history when he was born.

    "All we did was eat and drink, went to the cinema and the pub and talked. It was incredible."

    She's now making plans to move back home next June, but even the move will not be cheap.

    "I've seen around £400 a week so they're very expensive rent. A small amount every few months and you don't do that in other parts of the world. So this was a really nice Christmas present and a very long-term commitment."

    She also likes spending time at home, "I like to walk my dog, play the violin, just being with my dogs and just sitting on the sofa and watching movies.

    "I think it's just an interesting family situation and that I would find more comfortable and I would be there a lot longer."

    With so much moving involved in finding a place for herself and her friends she can no longer spend the money she needs on the family they'll only be leaving when the kids are grown.

    "We know the mortgage rates are high and so I'd have to cut costs and get a better value for money. We wouldn't be living rent free and living a very large house.

    "So at the moment the big question for me is will I ever go back because I don't know if anyone would ever want to live there.

    "We've got three kids and I've had no family to go out and live with at this point. It's kind of hard to move back to your parents old home now."

    The girls will spend summer holidays at home and her life will return to normal when they find out they won'

    Similar to any discipline of sport, horse riding also demands special gear. It won't mean that without proper gear of the rider, the horse will not canter, but the norm, coziness, aesthetics carry out a significant purpose in all of disciplines. Especially horseback riding, namely a discipline from distant past, has generated certain characteristics over the years. Breeches are unquestionably one of them.

    Equestrian breeches, ease and comfort, and custom
    Equestrian breeches are extraordinary horseback riding gear. Due to the fact they do not include seams on the inner section of the leg, namely in the place in which the rider’s leg meets the saddle, they give you ease and comfort and freedom of actions. Such a method of sewing helps to protect the skin from chafing, enables the rider to properly saddle the horse and experience for an extended time devoid of unfavorable outcomes. Breeches is likely to be firmer or puffed throughout the thighs, similar to cavalry breeches.

    Right now, the most famous are firmer types of breeches, on the other hand, there is still a considerable group of men and women preferring the cavalry style, for instance saloons or jodhpurs, with straight or slightly extending legs. The last type has become famous in the 19th century Britain owing to Jodhpur maharajah taking part in polo in such outfits.

    But what makes breeches exceptional?

    Breeches are seen as high waistline and grip - short or long. A grip is an supplemental reinforcement having a level of suede, leather or silicone that goes far to the knees or down the whole leg. It assures considerably better tackiness, gluiness, gumminess in the saddle, nevertheless, the type of the breeches is dependent on the rider’s tastes.

    Full grip breeches have got this additional strengthening on the inner side of the trousers on the entire length of where the rider’s body fits the saddle - on the buttocks to calves. This specific style is specially popular among dressage riders, who would rather ride at a trot or canter. Because of limited slippage and fine adhesiveness, they make it simpler to stay in the saddle.

    Knee grip breeches have the strengthening on the inner edge of the knees. This specific type is very popular among jumping riders as it ensures freedom of movements even at the price of a minimal grasp. It gets results at a trot and canter in half-seat.

    Materials for breeches
    In order for breeches to become as sturdy as possible, they should be manufactured from high quality elements. Fabric is decided on for a given time of year, that makes it properly breathable, isolating, quick-dry, and simple to clear. The material should be slightly flexible and maintain its design even with several laundries.
