One of those is underwater photography that allows a closer look of marine and aquatic environments. This underwater photography techniques have become popular among ocean scientists and marine research enthusiasts. This helps them capture quick images with good quality while going through the roof.
This helps better in genetic species identification, population structure identification, marine resource mapping and various types of behavioral studies of marine fauna. It is also undeniable that the educational merits of subsurface image is far reaching and diverse. Underwater photography, apart from helping in scientific ocean research, can also teach the younger generation on how ocean ecosystems can deeper influence our lives on earth. Also, it is unquestionable that underwater photography can be the eyes of the person who has never been lucky enough to see them in person and experience it. Virtual Reality lends its wide hands to do the same.
These 360 photographers from Technobrain International takes a deep dive around the beaches and lagoons and brings out the hidden treasures of the deep sea through it’s virtual product “T-Dive” which abbreviates as a Dive with Technology. In a way, experiencing the ocean through these virtual eyes reduces the human pressure caused to the deep-sea ecosystem. Virtual reality has the potential to be an effective tool that marine educators and conservationists can use to motivate an interest in and empathy for marine conservation and education at a global level. With more hope of contributing to the ocean health, Technobrain continues taking its deep dive into the oceans of Sri Lanka.
