Through the Lens 5. Composition (Portrait)

Through the lens_01Another thing I see a lot is the fact that nearly every photo taken underwater is in landscape orientation. As the centre point bullseye composition tells us that the shooter’s been lazy, so does the fact that they haven’t turned their camera through 90 degrees to capture some shots in portrait.

The same compositional tips apply as in TtL 4. But this time you’ll have the camera and housing on its side, that means your likely to have to move your strobe(s) and I’m sure this is something the lazy photographer can’t be bothered to do … Their images will suffer as a consequence.
