My First Underwater Photography Stint

I own an Olympus digital camera that guarantees to be waterproof up to 33 feet and shockproof up to 6.6 feet. I have no plans to test its shockproof capability but to give justice to its waterproof feature I thought that I should start taking underwater photographs. I don't know if I do well with this attempt as a novice underwater photographer. The following images where just taken from the lovely infinity pool of Amarela Resort in Panglao, Bohol. There's nothing to see at the bottom of the pool so I just concentrated taking pictures of the beautifully colored building.

I also took underwater photographs few days ago in Boracay but it would be in a separate blog entry. I will try to enhance further my underwater photography skills there in Mactan in my next trip in several days. I am not yet a certified diver but I took scuba lessons before so if I have a budget I'll go diving during the weekend to take more underwater pictures.

Oooh, that's the Olympus 1030sw right? That's actually my next digicam purchase and it's for the sole purpose of taking photos and videos underwater. :-D

Not bad at all for first attempt!

My sister had been deliberating of buying one of the waterproof camera but finally decided against it.

so you're using the olympus 850 sw here already?? hahaahaha. okay.. 850 is more or less the same with 1030 sw but is waterproof to more feet than 850 but since i don't want to swim deeper than 5 feet, 850 sw will do fine with me.. weeee.. thanks for the heads up!!!
