Photo tips – Choose the right photo gear

To shoot a split surface underwater photo you need to have a very big lens port (the thing covering your lens on the underwater camera housing). Preferebly you shoot with a fish eye lens around 15 mm and a lens port looking like half a bowl. That way you can much easier split the surface. Ps. See the last image below to see what it looks like.
