Product description

Review

"Packed with beautiful images and an easy-to read style, this book is both educational and inspirational."

Scuba Diving Magazine

Praise for the previous edition:

"In its third edition, The Underwater Photographer has evolved to become almost a standard work of reference. Martin Edge has developed his writing skills over the years, and we recommend this volume for anyone pursuing the now-less-than black art of underwater photography, especially with digital image-gathering in mind."--DIVE MAGAZINE PUBLICATION OF THE YEAR

"..let us just say that this is THE best underwater photo technique book on the market... PERIOD!"--DIVER magazine

Format: Paperback
This is probably the best underwater photography book I've read. The author explains in detail how he goes about setting up his installation. He separates different techniques into different sections, like macro, wide angle, wide angle close focus, wrecks, etc. It doesn't get a perfect score because nothing is perfect. Sometimes the author repeats techniques in different sections, and although appropriate at some point you'll think :yeah I get the idea by now. He also explains the techniques that work for him. That's solid advice, but it's also biased towards what he likes, not what exists.
Despite those points, that I consider very minor, I think this book is downright awesome. All photos have clear descriptions of situation and settings, which is a great help (though I would have liked to have seen depth information, but since there is no technology available to work that into exif data of a pic, that would be very hard to remember)

The best Underwater Photography book I have ever read. This is my bible! I have learnt and put into practice many tips that Martin recommends. I also bought and sent one to a friend abroad who is enjoying it as much as myself.

Brilliant book for both total amateur or intermediate. Well written and very easy to read I definitely think it will become an excellent reference book once I have got to grips with the basics.

A really good book full of useful information. Some beautiful photos also. I liked that he covers basic compacts to more advanced stuff.

Format: Paperback
I have read many times the second and third editions, and having them at your bookshelf makes you ask yourself if buying the fourth edition would be worth.
But comming from Martin, that question has a clear answer: GET IT!.
I was waiting for the Spanish translation but could not wait. I have gone through it and it's clearly not disapointing.
A few reasons for previous editions owners:
* Martin gives this time clear directions on what he does. Always preceed by a warning "This is what I do, may be it's not the standard way, but it's my way". And clearly many (or all) suggestions make sense.
* The book brings Alex Mustard's work. It looks their collaboration in organizing trips, and wetpixel's posts it's not the only thing they share.
* There are clearer directions on how to improve your pictures on your computer.

For first time potential readers, some points:
* If you have not read any book from Martin, then you are really new in UW Photography. Get It!
* Read it
* Re-Read it
* Re-Read it, and wait until next Martin's edition.

Enjoy it as much as I've done!
