A musician in my country has these covers for his newest songs which all use some sort of wavy underwater effect.

Any ideas or pointers to how to achieve a similiar effect in Photoshop?

They look like this:

  • Look for an underwater image like this one from unsplash.com

  • Mask everything except the water

Mask

  • Use another image, like this one from unsplash.com

boy

  • Put it under the Water Layer
  • Duplicate it at the top of the Water Layer and use the same mask but change the mask levels reducing the highlights

enter image description here

  • Duplicate the Object Layer in a new document and make a Duotone

  • Transform this Duotone into an RGB image and duplicate the layer to the original file
  • Change the blend mode, in this example to Hard Light

  • Add a masked Bubble Layer on top, Screen mode
