Heading off to some exotic island for this year’s vacation?
If you are, don’t return home without having recorded some of the world’s marvels found underwater, so be prepared to take some really great pics, and just by following a few of the underwater photography tips explained below…
(A) all start from the slow-motion, relative to air, water resistance much larger, slow the activities of the provincial gas is the most effective, but will also reduce the shock on the biological level, to maintain the natural biological form, and close more easily drawn the main biological, get the best camera positions and angles;
(B) good control of respiratory airway, slow and deep. Under the water, inhaling and exhaling will affect the buoyancy, resulting in holding machine instability. Slow movement, may be seeking to minimize oxygen, airway is also easy to control. Shooting, when handling the camera settings and composition, the moment before you press the shutter can be used for the right amount of shield gas, help the film stability. (read more…..)

The most spectacular underwater images ever seen: Incredible pictures capture dazzling array of color beneath the sea
From teeny-tiny to titanic, the University of Miami’s annual Underwater Photography contest has captured the colorful creatures typically beneath reach and view while awarding a vibrant sea slug as the contest’s star.
The contest held by the Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science reviewed 700 underwater photograph submissions before calling out the winners by category.
‘The quality of photos keeps getting better each year,’ UM lecturer and photographer Myron Wang who judged among the panel of experts said in a release by the school. (read more……)
And finally you might just need to still get a digital camera to achieve such high quality images of underwater life, and the Olympus OM-D EM-5 might just do the trick, as revealed in this great camera review by Jim Decker…
I spent quite a bit of time this week shooting the new Olympus OM-D EM-5 camera. The Olympus OM-D EM-5 is the new high-end Micro 4/3 mirror-less camera from Olympus. It boasts a new high sensitivity/low noise sensor, great ergonomics, and more dedicated buttons and dials.
There are 2 customizable function buttons. Fn1 is on the back of the camera and I set that one up to be AF-ON, thereby disabling the shutter button from focus, as I normally do on any SLR I shoot. Fn2 is on the top behind the shutter button and I assigned that to ISO. ISO changes were a breeze when setup this way.
Also a very handy feature when changing ISO is the camera lists your shutter speed, F stop, and your current EV meter reading, making it much faster to figure out which ISO is going to get you in range for your current exposure settings. This is super critical in video when you need to make quick ISO changes. Focus is SLR comparably fast with the Panasonic 8mm Fisheye, which is what I shot with all week. (read more….)
