Disposable underwater cameras can typically be developed at your local Wal-Mart or other film developing center. You can also purchase underwater cameras for more of a price but they last whenever you need one. Some people find this more economical than disposables, especially if
they want to take these pictures often.
Just like other venues of photography, you will probably start off with a cheaper and less advanced camera and work your way up if you continue underwater photography for a long time. There are two basics kinds of cameras; the underwater or waterproof camera and the encased camera which is inside a housing that protects it.
When taking pictures, you are going to need to be familiar with:
- Your camera
- Your lens
- Your film
- Your flash
There are different things in your environment that will affect the quality of your underwater photography.
- Depth of water and transparency of water
- The angle of the sunlight on the top of the water
- The backscatter
- Water has a magnifying effect
These are some things to help you get started in the world of underwater photography. If you are lucky enough to be swimming in the sea, you should get some proof to share with others.
