    Exploring the Basics of Underwater Photography

    Last updated 4 months ago

    There’s a whole other world under the surface of the ocean, and there are cameras designed to help you capture the breathtaking beauty only found underwater. Even if you aren’t much an ocean lover, an underwater camera will come in handy during pool parties and trips to the lake. To help you capture the best aquatic scenes, here are some of the basics of underwater photography.

    Use a Strobe or Flash

    Water absorbs colors such as red, orange, and yellow the deeper you travel. This is why your underwater photographs will look blue if you don’t use a flash or strobe. If you underwater camera doesn’t come with a built-in flash, buy an external strobe/flash to add color to your pictures. If using an internal flash, you may notice that your photos have backscatter, which may appear like dirt on your lens but is actually due to illuminated particles in the water.

    Get Very Close to Your Subject

    Water reduced contrast, color, and sharpness. For this reason, underwater photographers recommend taking photographs within three feet of the camera, preferably much closer. You will need to get very close to your subject in order for your photograph to turn out clear, especially if your subject is moving or hidden in coral.

    Practice Your Diving Skills

    Before you attempt to use your underwater camera for the first time, practice your diving skills. You don’t want to dive down and mess with your camera while you are still figuring out how to use your breathing apparatus and maintain buoyancy. The more comfortable you are underwater, the better your photographs will be.  

    Camera Land is proud to offer the SeaLife ReefMaster underwater camera. This easy-to-use, self-contained underwater dive camera has a 200ft depth rating and comes with an external Mini Wide Angle Lens for breathtaking aquatic shots.

    Capture Beautiful Shots of Spring Blooms with These Tips

    Last updated 4 months ago

    One of the reasons flowers in bloom are so breathtaking is that their beauty is fleeting. As sure as flowers bloom in the spring, they wither and die in the fall. But with the right digital camera, you can capture this fleeting beauty and enjoy it for the rest of your life. Of course, it also helps if you know how to use your digital camera. Here are some tips to help you capture the perfect flower shots this spring.

    Examine Your Subject

    Before you start shooting away, pause and examine your subject. Determine what angle you will shoot from to get the best perspective, and consider how the lighting will affect your photograph. Also determine how the flower interacts and looks with the environment around it. This will help you identify a point of interest for your piece and position yourself as to remove unwanted distractions or highlight background elements.

    Identify the Point of Interest

    In all types of photography the most important thing to think about is where you want your viewers’ eyes to be drawn. In flower Macro photography, your depth of field is a matter of millimeters, so attention to detail in focusing is something to be practiced. Identify the point of interest, be it a petal, stalk, or pistil, and work hard to ensure that it is as sharp as possible.
