Underwater digital photography is one of the most rewarding activities to engage in summer. Though it may be considered a hobby more than a sport, you do have to swim, snorkel or dive to enjoy the fruits of this activity. Images of under the sea was something only seen in national geographic or documentary film, but now with the wide range of underwater cameras and waterproof casings nearly anyone can take up under water digital photography.

How is Underwater Digital Photography Different From Normal Photography

  • One of the key differences between the two is that the spectrum of light under water is different from that on dry land. This makes the need for a flash essential in order to receive the colors. Though some cameras like the Kodak Playsport come with auto color adjustments.
  • Apart from light you have different conditions if you are in fresh water and in sea water. In the sea you may experience backscatter of the flash reflecting on salt particles which could leave you with a blurred image. One way to avoid blurred images is to try to get as close to your object as you can. The further away you are forming your subject the greater the volume of salt.
