Australian photographer Matthew Smith captured photos of life above and below sea level. He named this project over/under. Photographing these types of images present some unique technical challenges. There’s a difference in lighting and focus between the two areas, so Smith uses a strobe light for the underwater part of the photo. Check out his photos showing life above and below sea level.
