Final Words: How To Shoot Underwater?

It is not enough to just go underwater with your GoPro and start filming. To capture the best shots and videos, just follow a few key rules for shooting quality under water videos:

  • Keep the camera steady by using a floating stick while snorkelling or a camera rig when scuba diving; this will help avoid vibrations that produce shaky images.
  • The sun should always be behind you so as not to cast shadows on people’s faces from its glare.
  • Underwater, record long sequences of video instead of many takes so you can focus on your dive instead of thinking about the camera.


I hope that this tutorial helps you gain knowledge regarding the waterproof specs of different GoPro models & about the accessories to use with the GoPro underwater.
