Underwater Photography Art & Techniques is a new colour paperback book about underwater photography aimed at the novice to intermediate underwater photographer. Even those with more experience will find useful advice and information. The 176 page paperback book contains over 200 images and illustrations to compliment the techniques described in each chapter. The book is not filled with just tropical, clear water images either, but showcases shots from 14 countries, in waters ranging from 3 to 33°C, from 1-101m visibility, from 0-40m depth, in salt, fresh and brackish waters. The chapters cover the camera settings and how they interact, composition, lighting techniques, wreck photography, coping with low visibility, animal behaviour and habitats and post dive editing.
The book has been getting great reviews from those that have read it. Here are a few quotes:
“This is an absolutely outstanding guide to underwater photography, which fully lives up to its titling “Underwater Photography – Art and Techniques”. It set to become the “must-have” title for divers of all abilities”
“Whatever your next day of diving is, be it wide angle, macro or low light conditions, this book makes for a superb reference to help you to get the best from your camera. It’s well worth sticking it in your dive bag.” Sport Diver
