By Maria Munn, a superb 176 page A5 softback book. This is the first book ever to be completely dedicated to users of compact cameras for underwater photography and although primarily aimed at beginners/intermediate photographers, there is still plenty of material in the pages to offer more advanced shooters and even dSLR users will find a number of interesting tips. Glossy full page photographs show both snorkellers and divers the results they can achieve from all different makes and models of equipment.
This is an easy-to-understand practical guide covering everything to help you choose a suitable camera, understanding all of its settings, using additional accessories such as wet lenses and strobes as well as a huge chapter dedicated to compostion tips and tricks. A special "Guest Gallery" is also included to show how complete beginners have gone on to win many prizes using the techniques in this book.
Maria has dedicated her career over the past 9 years to underwater photography, as a photographer, instructor and journalist and has helped many guests worldwide achieve amazing results with compact cameras. She launched PADI's Digital Photography Course in 2006, has been featured in 16 publications and more recently, her guest Daniel Norwood won the British Society of Underwater Photographers 'Best Beginner Portfolio' using a compact camera set-up.
This book promises to inspire and help you get the most from your compact camera whether in blue or temperate waters.
