Underwater Photo Composition Tips
Good composition is paramount in underwater photography. It will make or break a photo.
We have all heard of basic composition tips like the "rule of thirds," but there are many more concepts that can be incorporated into your shots depending on the field of view, depth of field, subject, lighting techniques and more. Sometimes a subtle shift in perspective or tack sharp focus on an eye will give the photo (or video scene) the pop it needs to stand out from the rest. This is why we continually study composition, learn the rules and develop a sense for when to break them.
The tutorials below dive into many of the aspects of composition for underwater photography.
If there's a topic of composition you want to learn but can't find, email me at email@example.com and we'll get a tutorial up on the site. Enjoy!
