Best Underwater Photographers

Underwater photography requires special equipment and the knowledge of unique techniques about correct exposure, accurate focus, controlled movement of the subject, a pleasing color balance and mastery in low light photography. Underwater photos offen suffer from loss of color and contrast when taken at a significant depth. Such photos are always adjusted with color balance to help offset the blueish tint of the water.

Since underwater photography is a specialized art, relatively few photographers attempt it, and even fewer master this art. But those that do, often create rare, fresh and truly uniquely vivid photos. This is "people choice" for those amont them that have perfected this skill and took this art to whole new level. Enjoy, vote and support these wonderful artists so they can keep creating.
