Underwater Photography : A New World
Underwater photography is considered an especially challenging area of photography, since it requires very specialized equipment and techniques to be successful.
The primary obstacle faced by underwater photographers is the extreme loss of color and contrast when submerged to any significant depth. Underwater photographers solve this problem by combining two techniques. The first is to get the camera as close to the photographic subject as possible, minimizing the horizontal loss of color. This is best achieved by using wide-angle lenses, which allow very close focus, or macro lenses, where the subject is often only inches away from the camera.
The second technique is the use of flash to restore any color lost vertically through the water column. Below are a few stunning examples of underwater photos, hope you like them.
