The Art of Underwater Wide-Angle Photography


I started shooting with the Tokina AT-X 10-17mm f/3.5-4.5 DXA back in 2012. It is the most popular fisheye lens used for wide-angle under water photography. It is also known for its close focusing capabilities underwater and on land. The lens is a high-quality product built for professionals working in the field. The Tokina 10-17mm Fisheye is my favorite lens in my bag and has been my go-to lens for the project "Crabs with Beach Trash Homes"

If you plan on using the fisheye lens underwater, you will need and underwater housing. I am currently using the Nauticam Na-D500 with the 100mm Zen dome port (Dp-100-N120T). 

If you want to use the zoom function underwater you will have to attach a zoom ring (P#19127) to the lens. The Nauticam zoom ring installation process is fairly easy.

Below are some of my favorite underwater photographs taken with the Tokina AT-X 10-17mm f/3.5-4.5 DXA in combination with my older lkelite underwater setup. I mainly focus on macro photography but I will be pushing my self to shoot more wide-angle this year.

Okinawa is best known for its beautiful beaches and seascapes. All photographs were taken with the Tokina AT-X 10-17mm f/3.5-4.5 DXA.
