Underwater Art

Animals & Nature

Waterproof cameras have enabled talented photographers to extend the world of art to the ocean. Coral reefs and the creatures that inhabit them still contain unexplored areas. New species of fish are constantly being discovered. It is a gift to be able to go below the ocean’s surface and photograph the inhabitants of this watery world. It takes an excellent eye for motion and color to snap artful photographs of moving fish. The artist must also compensate for the color changes brought on by the water covering the entire environment. The penetration of sunlight also has an effect on color values. Art from the ocean depths is well worth collecting in the modern world.
