It is only rarely I come across a book as good as this! Assuming you have a basic knowledge of photography, the text explains the choice of equipment for high class underwater photography, maintaining the equipment, understanding the behaviour of light underwater, which film and lens to use, before exploring the art of framing your model; fish, invertebrate or aquascape to provide the best aesthetic portrait. The book contains over 160 of excellent underwater shots from close-ups of individual fish to huge shoals against a backdrop of an invertebrate covered reef. There is also a section of videography.

The book does not contain any biological information, but the photographs are great! It is also extremely well written.

Price: £16.99, $US18.00.

Thanks Andy,
I'm glad to get book reviews. I'd do some myself but I just haven't the time.
Best wishes,
