50/50 Photography
 
Over Under
50/50, or over/under photography, is a specialty area all to itself. It's probably the hardest aspect of underwater photography to master successfully.

This is not so much because of the equipment or skills needed but rather because water

conditions invariably determine the final outcome. Unless the conditions are absolutely ideal, it is next to impossible to get an acceptable photo. But when you do, the time and effort are certainly worth it. Over/under photos have terrific impact, and everyone always asks: "How did you get that shot?"

For equipment, you need an underwater housing, a dome port and a wide-angle lens (preferably a 20mm or greater).

Unfortunately, no sooner do you put a camera in a housing, when Nature conspires to make things difficult. From the onset, the photographer has to contend with two problems, both related to physics.
