Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

This beautifully illustrated book offers much helpful advice on taking underwater photographs and presents a lovely showcase of color images made beneath the surface. The book first describes various reefs in the Caribbean, the Pacific, the Red Sea, and elsewhere around the world that offer the best photo opportunities. Useful chapters on underwater lighting, photo techniques, and various cameras, such as the Nikonos, follow. The appendixes include a list of suppliers of underwater equipment and helpful information for those who wish to sell their photographs to advertising agencies and publishers. The book will be most appreciated by serious amateurs and professionals who wish to extend their abilities into underwater photography. Others may simply enjoy viewing the remarkable photographs and learning how an accomplished photographer approaches his work. Highly recommended for larger photography collections in both public and academic libraries.?Raymond Bial, Parkland Coll. Lib., Champaign, Ill.

Stephen Frink's book Wonders of the Reef: Diving with a Camera struggles with what kind of book it should be: coffee table photo book or UW instructional book. As a result it is not particularly great at either one. There are great photos in here. But it's not really a coffee table book. The photo instruction is very basic almost as if he's afraid to give too much away.

Good photography isn't easy under the best of cirucmstances. Stephen Frink's work is great despite the myriad problems of underwater photography. Frink is a master of technique with an artist's eye for capturing the moment where the truth of the subject is revealed. Often dramatic, sometimes humorous, but most of all the reader is left with a sense of wonder at the alternately beautiful, haunting and sometimes terrifying world of the reef. Here's a sincere wish that Mr. Frink will give us more books in the days to come.

This book is a waste of your money, the pictures are average, you can find the same quality in any scuba magazine at a lower cost. There are better books on the subject out there. The writing is amateur in nature and the instructional content very weak, Instead, I would recommend books by Jim Church or Howard Hall, they are of a more professional style and overall finish.
