Week 25 Challenge: Water

Week 25 Challenge: Water

Promoting Passion Video Blog: Underwater How To

Over 3 years ago I made my first video all about underwater photography. Looking back on it I find it endearing not just because it was put together so crudely, but because I haven’t changed much since then. I love putting videos together with just myself and a camera! So in that spirit I hope you enjoy this new video with updated tips on shooting underwater! 1. Shoot with a dark background. This tip is definitely one of those that…
