Spectacular Shots Above and Below the Sea


Get ready to pack your bags! Let’s take a trip and seek out some clear waters where we can capture shots like this.

Called over-unders, split-shots, or just splits, this photographic technique helps you see both what’s inside the water and outside of it at the same time. The lens (usually fisheye) is positioned half above the water and half below the water.

Here, then, are 20+ photos that we hope you’ll think about the next time you’re planning a vacation. How amazing would it be to bring home pictures like this?

After first marveling at her embroidered animals last year, she’s back with even more meticulously stitched woodland creatures. Some of them are no larger than a thimble. Using subtle color changes and countless passes of the satin stitch, Giordano mimics the look of fur on hopping rabbits, sleepy squirrels, and scurrying mice.
