Underwater Photography: 38 Impressive Glamour Shots Taken Under Water

Inspiration May 20, 2011

Photos taken underwater are majestic forms of art. They allow us to see a world that is quite different from the one that we tread on. However, unlike other genre, it requires that both the photographer and the model know exactly how the process will flow, every step of the way. Underwater photography  takes a lot of effort, resources and skill. After all, one cannot accomplish such feat by merely sinking underwater with a camera.

Another great challenge is to neutralize the blue tone of water with the light coming in the lens of the camera. Thus, certain lens filters, advanced cameras with high ISO capabilities and full powered strobes are needed to achieve high definition images.

Only few photographers attempt to practice underwater photography because of its rather complex processes, but in the end, the results are just phenomenal. Underwater photography is also a popular theme in advertising and fashion editorials. To show you a few, here are some of the most amazing underwater glamour pictures we’ve had a great fortune to find.

    fabulous shots. Have been taking photos uw as a wreck diver for about 3 years. These have given me huge inspiration!

    My photos are on flickr under BluDL – mostly wrecks, wildlife – not as artistic as these but watch this space – once I have talked my buddy into wearing that wedding dress!!

    Incredible collection! I am just an amateur photographer, and I am trying to take some underwater pictures now, mainly because I want to have some training before I go for vacations in Australia, where I hope I’ll take some nice shots of local underwater world. These photos are very inspirational, I especially like the one with the lady on the rope.
