The Ultimate Underwater Shooting Guide for GoPro Hero4: How to Get Amazing Underwater Color with Your GoPro
Just about everyone owns a GoPro, especially scuba divers. More than any other camera model, these small, high definition action cams are underwater and above water, recording the adventures of people world-wide. However, unless you have been shooting underwater for awhile, or know a competent underwater shooter who’ll guide you on what you need to do to get good underwater color, these cameras, without color-correction filters, will provide video and stills that are monochromatic… all blue or all green. While it’s cool to alot of people just to see what goes on underwater, it’s way cooler to see the actual colors of the reefs and the marine and plant life that inhabit them.
In the third article of this series on Dive Photo Guide, we show you the differences between footage without color-correction and with color-correction, and the accessories you’ll need to get amazing underwater color with YOUR GoPro camera.

Working in Sub-Zero Temperatures!
- It was so cold that even the camera gear needed its own insulated jacket!
- The food chain is never compromised with cold-storage warehousing.
- This forklift driver is picking an order to be delivered to a customer.
We recently shot some video for a client whose business is cold-storage warehousing. They have many different rooms of varying degrees of chill, as the products they store are mainly perishable foodstuffs. For a particular video sequence, the room we were shooting in was a chilly -2 degrees fahrenheit! Not only did we have to bundle up with layer upon layer of clothing AND a special freezer jacket, but the camera and reference monitor also had its own special insulated “jacket” with warmers!
So what’s it like to work in those conditions for an extended period of time? BRRRRR! Yes, it’s very cold! And you never quite get used to the sensation of your nose hairs freezing!
