Water Photography by Blank Wall Gallery
Underwater photography is usually done while scuba diving, but can be also done with automated cameras lowered from the surface. Underwater photography can be characterized as an art form as it offers exciting and rare photographic opportunities. Animals such as fish and marine mammals are common subjects, but photographers also pursue other things such as seaweeds, geological features, and portraits of fellow divers or models enjoying the water.
In Blank wall gallery we would like to see photos with the water element from all the categories above. All means accepted.
