It can be done while diving on the surface, scuba diving, snorkeling, swimming, or from a submissive or remotely operated underwater vehicle.

Equipment for Underwater Photography and Filming
There are various equipment which you require for the underwater filming which are very adverse to the ones which we use in the normal conditions. There are many cameras which are waterproof and can be used underwater. The first of these cameras was Calypso, which was reintroduced in 1963 by Nikon. Otherwise, there are also cameras used for dry work which can be taken underwater, by protecting them with add on housings. Action cameras, DSLRs and bridge cameras are mostly used below the water.
In general, macro or wide-angled lenses are used for this purposes that we can get clear view at short distances itself. Many a times a flash or video lights are used to fill light at the dark spots underway. In addition to these there are many more equipments which are used by the technicians and photographers as they work in the water.
