Taking Pictures Underwater

Have you seen a photo of a shark underwater? How do people take underwater photos?

First, they need a special camera. The camera must be waterproof. A waterproof camera keeps out water, just like a raincoat! The best time to take a picture underwater is when it is sunny. The sunlight will shine through the water.

People dive deep into the ocean to find animals. They have to be patient. When an animal comes close, they take many photos. They have to act fast! The animal might swim away!
