Post Processing Clinic
Creating beautiful underwater images is an art form, and that creative process rarely ends with the click of the shutter button. Most photographers do some form of post-processing, sometimes as simple as cropping, sometimes as complex as masking and detailed spot editing to make a good image even better. When working underwater, technical issues can be more of a problem than with topside photography, and careful editing can salvage an excellent composition marred by these distractions. We believe that this is not “cheating” (as long as it is not done to deceive the viewer), but rather one more step that needs to be studied and practiced by the successful underwater photographer.
