I have read most of the popular books on the subject but I found this book compelling. The author does not waste time dronning on and on about all the different kinds of equipment. He concentrates on the mind and the eye....the heart and the sole (his words not mine) and he does just that. For once Martin Edge discusses all the tricksof the trade about how particular shots are obtained. He discloses the number of shots that he got wrong before the one that he was pleased with. There are chapters on Patience, Concentration, and Subject Selection. What I most enjoyed about the book was the section on the TC System, It means Think and Consider and it is a concept that he encourages all underwater photographers to do underwater before they press the shutter. The images are stunning and its a book I could read over and over again. I strongly recomend this book to any underwater photographer. It will, I am sure, improve their underwater photography.

Martin's book is an excellent read for all levels of photographers. Rather than concentrating on the technical workings of the camera, which numerous books do, this book is about taking pictures - choosing subjects, planning composition and generally thinking about what you are doing (his TC system - "think and consider"). My u/w results improved 1000 fold as a result (and, I have to admit, having been on his course and his 1997 expedition to Sipadan!). Should give something to u/w photographers at all levels.

Martin Edge provides a comprehensive introduction to underwater photography. He covers everything from camera basics to handling the distractions of being underwater to lighting. I thought his balance of content was excellent. The many color photograph examples were also very useful in understanding each element. A must buy for new U/W photographers.
