Easy Underwater Photography

Posted by Christi Ginger — 10 Jan 2008

Don't want to buy a waterproof camera or pricey shell for your digital? Get a plastic bag!

I've come across a bunch of JPG photographs taken underwater, or just above water, by placing the camera in a ziplock baggie. I wouldn't recommend it unless you're willing to risk a little leakage. And I'd probably get the pricier bags with a double seal. :)

Here's some examples of these intrepid JPG bag photographers:

Stinging Beauty by Carissa Warfield


flimflam by Jerad DeBoard


If fact, Jerad has written a story on his ziplock adventures.

Drop me a line if you try this technique out and I'll add your results to this post... but don't say I didn't warn you.
