Learn how to capture topside and underwater in one shot, and all the variations you can try in this dramatic style of photo.
- [Host] We're going to devote this movie to the topic…of over-unders, and this time, the idea…is that we want to capture topside and under water…in a single photograph.…And so we've got a couple of styles of over-unders.…The first is what we're calling a split shot.…So, the camera is partially under water,…and at least one strobe is under water as well,…and the effect is this right here.…And what's so great about this shot…is it's one single photograph.…It's not a Photoshop composition for example,…but we do have a very definite split between topside…above that red line, and under water, below the line.…
- [Instructor] And so we've sort of given the term…to the opposite of this, the anti-split,…and so in this case, the camera's actually out of the water,…but the strobes are still under water…illuminating that under water scene,…so what we get is the coral reef underneath the water there…is still being lit by the strobes,…and so it's showing through almost through like a screen…onto the surface of the water,…
