Excerpt from the introduction:

“In this inspiring underwater world, the challenge is rarely deciding what will make a great picture. Rather, it is capturing it. Few branches of photography are as technically demanding and unforgiving of poor technique. Just as Michelangelo needed to master the chisel before carving a marble block into the statue of David, underwater photographers need to learn photo techniques, particularly lighting, to truly express themselves artistically. The aim of this book is to arm you with the techniques that will allow you to produce outstanding images in the full range of underwater conditions. It will also introduce you to many creative techniques that will transform your underwater portfolio from your very next dive.”
