Half and half

‘Half and half’ is a fun way to use your underwater housing. I tried it out on a holiday and decided I wanted more of a wide angle in the photos to achieve better compositions. So I got hold of a Sea&Sea housing and made use of the perfect combination of my EOS 5DS and my EF11-24mm f/4L USM lens.

On my most recent trip I got the chance to test it and it really is a fun way to take photos but also much harder than one might imagine. One challenge that will happen is that you will get water drops on the dome - which can’t be removed after - so you have to learn how to avoid them. I used a towel. When swimming, you can also quickly dip the dome and then take photos before any new drops occur. (Thanks for the tip Audun Rikardsen!)

Having a strong foreground and a nice background is also very important, just like in landscape photos. It very much remains all about the composition.

So why not try it out? Canon has some really good underwater housings for many different cameras so get one for your camera and go out and try it. You will love it!
