Wildlife and naturalist photographers are on the front line to witness the impact of global warming and pollution on our ecosystems. Among them, those who dive to meet marine fauna are the privileged witnesses of the richness and fragile balance of oceanic biodiversity.
This is the case of the Mexican photographer Christian Vizl, a partner of the Yellow Korner galleries. His black and white photos show that underwater photography does not need colour to gain in dramatic intensity.

Other photographers, such as Pascal Kobeh, the diving photographer, do not hesitate to get up close and personal with the most impressive creatures, such as this great white shark. In this photograph, the artist shares his encounter with the shark, a rare moment marked by respect and serenity.

To get started in underwater photography, it may be preferable to buy a waterproof housing for your camera before investing in dedicated equipment. If a compact camera already offers beautiful renderings, the main thing at depth is to equip yourself with a powerful flash, the lack of luminosity being under the surface the main pitfall.
No underwater excursions planned? An equally interesting alternative is to visit an aquarium and take photographs of marine animals and visitors. You will obtain poetic compositions as if suspended between two worlds.
You can then give these photographs a place in your home thanks to our expert photo printing laboratory.
