Taking the perfect split-landscape style photo can be tough, especially if you don't have money to buy the necessary equipment. But even if you have a low budget you can still snap some impressive photos. This is how it's done.
I thought it would cost a fortune in camera equipment to take these photos. Thankfully, I was wrong
What you’ll need: Camera + Underwater housing ($200-500), Camera Dome from GoWorx ($300), Camera Handle ($20), Anti Fog Insert ($1)
All set up! The handle isn’t required but helps with stabilization
The alternative can cost anywhere from $1500-3000 for the dome alone
Start off by practicing in a swimming pool
It’s much easier to keep the dome level and above the water when there aren’t waves
The most challenging aspect can be keeping the top of your dome clear of water spots
When at the pool, it’s easy enough to dry off the dome with a paper towel
Keep your dome “spot free” using baby soap
This is a common method often used by scuba divers to keep their googles clear
And that’s it! Go capture some beautiful photos!
Once you figure out the basics, it’s possible for anyone to take beautiful underwater photos
All of the photos in this article were taken on my first day with the dome
Hope to see some from you soon!
