Shooting underwater comes with its challenges, but it can result in some stunning images. The same goes for building your own complex sets from scratch. But what happens when you bring the two together? Photographer Brett Stanley decided to give it a shot.
Brett built entire rooms in his home studio and placed them underwater, which resulted in some pretty epic photos. Brett kindly shared them with DIYP, along with some BTS shots, and he told us what it takes to build an entire room underwater.

Do you like unusual, abstract portraits? Underwater photography? Or black and white images? Australian photographer Trent Mitchell brings these genres together in a magnificent series titled Inner Atlas. They show bodysurfers beneath the ocean waves, and they’ll take your breath away.

We have all seen stunning examples of underwater photos and videos.

In this video, Benny from Aputure shares seven things you must know before your first underwater project.
We have certainly seen all kinds of dangerous stunts for the sake of photography. A recent video published by New York Post shows one of the crazies I’ve seen so far. Underwater photographer Ken Kiefer took three models to crocodile-infested waters for underwater shots – and the women got face to face with the fierce animals. What’s more, the team even used lionfish to lure the beasts near the models.
