The best way to capture this shot is to use:

• Wide angle lens preferably a fisheye or fisheye zoom lens.

• Most importantly, the largest dome port available for your housing. A large dome port will always handle surface swell better than a smaller port.

Another tip is to use an underwater housing fitted with an angled 45° viewfinder which allows you to view the composition with your head and most importantly, your eyes out of the water (See further discussion at the end of this chapter.)

For my split shots I use either a 10.5 mm fisheye or theTokina 10 mm—17 mm zoom. Both lenses have a considerable depth of field, which copes with most focusing issues. If the underwater and land portions are too far away from each other, ensure you prioritise sharp focus on the foreground.
