5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Book for All Levels, June 13, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Underwater Photographer (Paperback)
I have been doing UW photography for about 8 years and diving over 35 years. I have read just about every book published on underwater photography--including Edge's third edition of this book. The Fourth edition is, by far, the best book written on the subject.

This book starts with all the fundamentals for someone just starting. For the intermediate/experienced photographer, it goes into more depth on Edge's own style. He does have some biases--as do all underwater photographers--and he does present them as such. However, he does state the more popular ideas/thinking on the same subjects. His biases should not be dismissed without trial or serious thought because he does have expertise in his subject.

One of the strengths of this book is that is written really only for digital photography. Just about all the books published 3-5 years ago (including Edge's earlier editions of this book), were either written about underwater photography, in general (since the authors had little experience with digital) or were mixed film and digital. This book has nice chapters on work flow, digital manipulation in post shooting, and discussion of digital equipment--up-to-date.
As far as I'm concerned, it is THE book to have.
