Check the water visibility
A clear water condition would surely look nice even without color correction. Find areas or check the weather for a sunny day. AThe brighter the area, the faster shutter speed would be and is best for underwater movements.
Shoot in Shallow Waters
Shallow waters to have more light than the deeper areas. This is the perfect place to get a perfect shot. Don’t hesitate to snap some with your friends before you dive.
Use Time Lapse to Get the Best Pose
Instead of clicking the button to capture, use time-lapse instead. This will give you options on exposures in the same scene. Just screenshot the video and poof you have a perfectly still image.
Shoot Raw and use Color Correction Apps
Do not get disappointed if you got a blueish scene on your videos. You can use a mobile application to correct the color for you. One app you could use is Dive+. You could also use photoshop or lightroom to edit the colors on your photos.
