Seascape Vistas and When Using Magic Filters

In topside photography it is a popular technique to angle the camera downwards and from above to capture a landscape in a rural setting. UK land photographers Joe Cornish and Colin Prior are masters of this technique.

The use of Magic filters in shooting underwater seascapes is not dissimilar. Magic filters work best when the sun is coming from behind the photographer and the camera is aimed at a downward angle. Aiming your camera in this direction is a prerequisite to achieving the best possible results using these filters. More about Magic filters in the 'All About Lighting'chapter.

Consider your favourite underwater coffee table books. It's an interesting exercise to see just how many of the images you admire are shot at either an eye level angle or shooting upwards.
