When shoot­ing un­der­wa­ter the white bal­ance and colours can be dif­fi­cult to per­fect in-cam­era. By shoot­ing Raw, we have the op­tion to ad­just the white bal­ance af­ter, with the ex­act same re­sults as if we’d done so be­fore. To cor­rect the blue casts that of­ten af­fect un­der­wa­ter pho­tos, use Cam­era Raw (or Light­room’s) white bal­ance eye­drop­per tool and click on a point that should be neu­tral, like a white piece of the cloth­ing. Then go on to tweak the White Bal­ance Tem­per­a­ture and Tint slid­ers un­til the colours look right. If the sky is show­ing through the wa­ter, cor­rect­ing the colours might skew those above the wa­ter. If it does, try paint­ing with the Ad­just­ment Brush tool loaded with neg­a­tive tem­per­a­ture and tint.
