When creating your very own underwater photography set the first thing you need to do is choose a camera. Decide whether you are getting a simpler and more affordable compact camera that can take both photographs and video or a more advanced dSLR (digital single-lens reflex camera) that can capture high-definition images.
The next step is choosing strobes (lights). Make sure you have at least one good camera light. It will be enough if you only shoot macro, otherwise, it is best for you to get two strobes. Strobes can be a bit pricey, but they will last you a long time.
Lenses are not a must but they often make a real difference between a regular and a really breathtaking picture. A decent collection of lenses is also quite an investment, however, they too may be useful for many years. Consider getting yourself a good macro and/or wide-angle lens, depending on where your interest lies. You can also get some color pictures to make your photos more vibrant.
