Underwater Ocean Pictures in Full Color

My biggest passion in life is the ocean. So it makes sense that capturing underwater pictures is my favorite type of photography. For years I spent every free moment I could swimming and scuba diving in the ocean. I love the calming sound of the waves and the smell of the salty sea air. The ocean is where I go to escape, relax, and gain perspective.


My love of the ocean began during childhood. However, my love of ocean photography began on my very first scuba dive. Armed with my 24-exposure 35mm disposable camera, I took my very first underwater photos. Not many pictures came out that day, but I have loved photographing the underwater world ever since.


Standing atop a hill next to the ocean, you can see the curve of the Earth and the mesmerizing expanse of water as far as the eye can see. The power and rhythm of the waves are endless. The rhythm never ceases to call my name. Do you ever find yourself standing at the edge of the ocean and wonder what lives just out of sight at the bottom of the sea?

Black and White Underwater Ocean Pictures

When Black and White Underwater Photography was first suggested to me, I was entirely confused. It never dawned on me to convert my beautifully colored underwater photographs to monochrome. After investing so much into the elaborate camera and lighting equipment for composing underwater, why would I ever want to do this? 


It is important to understand that the further a diver goes underwater, the more color is lost. Without lighting equipment to go with their camera, photographs simply come out as a flat blue or green color. Post-processing can alleviate some of this problem, but only to a point. To remedy this problem, underwater photographers bring powerful lights on their dives to remove this blue haze, which allows the amazing colors of the ocean creatures to reveal themselves.


It wasn’t until I first created black and white photographs with my underwater photography that I began to realize how truly powerful of a creative expression this type of photography can be. That was the day I fell in love with black and white underwater photos.

Why go through all this trouble to then get rid of the beautiful colors? Take a look at the black and white underwater photos below and explore the depth and power these works of art achieve.
