In reality it is quite generic and with almost no clear explanation of how the basic photographic tools need to be adapted to the underwater photography
Whoever has even a limited knowledge of out-of-water photography will find the book uninformative and often even confusing in its attempt to over simplify
It is probably addressed to real beginners who no previous photographic experience even if I doubt a beginner will learn much reading this book
I personally find it hard to "take things in", and firstly I am a diver, not a photographer (even on land!!!), yet found the book very clear... showing comparative photos taken on different settings so I could compare and contrast outcome were invaluable. Maria's enthusiasm for her subject shines through, and encourages , I found it quite inspiring, especially as I have seen such a change in my own pictures now in a relatively short time. In the past I was only interested in taking "snaps" initially but got bored of that, when all my pictures were murky green, murky blue on holiday with no colour contrasts, and over exposures etc.
I bought the book as I was booking on one of maria's photography day courses and being a girly swat I wanted to try and get a bit of understanding before I went on the course. I keep this book with me in my camera crate, and it goes on holiday with me too! I might even get myself a kindle version to make it super convenient for travel!
Get the most out of your camera and buy this book.... you invest so much money in a camera , housing and strobe.....then don't make the most of it! Go on you know you want to!
Ignore the snotty comments, from people who wanted advanced techniques or those that think the person has to be famous to be worth reading. It appears that photography does attract more than its fair share of cockwombles!
You really learn that underwater photography brings you several extra variables you don't haveon land. DO I want a black background, or a colourful one? How can I catch rays beaming through the water?
Obviously don't buy for original Kindle reader it is useless in Black and White!
