Today, I want to show you how to take amazing underwater shots using a gopro. A big part of this, is learning to think like a photographer. In this particular shot, there are a few key points (tips) that I want to share.

1. Change your perspective. To do this I bought a dome port for the gopro. That gave me 33 percent wider view and the ability to get both above and below water. LINK TO THE PORT:

2. Learn to Post-Process: Half of your shot can be accomplished easily enough in post production. Photoshop has some great filters if used right. This the balance I used. If you just want to see the post – skip to 5:01 to start this only.

THE ORIGINAL PIC: If you want to test out the original picture for yourself, here is the file. – send me a message to if you make something cool. Would love to see it.
