Description

Glass and Water is the first book on underwater photography for freedivers. With contributions from expert underwater photographers this book teaches the skills, knowledge and equipment necessary to successfully pursue underwater photography without scuba gear.

Rather than seeking to replace books on underwater photography, Glass and Water ?focuses on freediving techniques, equipment and photo opportunities. By carefully choosing or adapting freediving and photographic equipment some early hurdles can be avoided. Using appropriate freediving techniques can increase the length of time available for taking photographs underwater. And by being aware of the possibilities, frustrations can be avoided and good subjects sought out.

Includes photos and/or contributions from Fred Buyle, Sue Flood, Danny Kessler, Dr Anne-Marie Kitchen-Wheeler, Laura Storm, Andrew Sutton, Shane Wasik, and a Foreword by Dan Bolt.

Contents include: Foreword by Dan Bolt; Free­diving Equipment for Underwater Photo­graphy; Photographic Equipment; Underwater Photography Basics; Challenges and Opportunities for Freedivers; Lungcraft; Finning; Descents and Ascents; Neutral Buoyancy; Hydrodynamics; Safety; Creature by Creature; A Virtual Dive; Behind the Lens. Plus a Glossary of key terms.

Reviews:

'You will end up with an extensive skill set if you pursue all avenues of advice... A great addition to the bookshelf for photographers and freedivers': learn2freedive.com

'A very informative book which will help freedivers improve their images... The nicest surprise for me was the "Virtual Dive" chapter. This chapter alone was worth the price of the book... Glass and Water is obviously aimed at freedivers but scuba divers would also benefit from the content of this book': UWP magazine.

'It's most unlikely that you'll come away without learning something brand new and innovative... I'm very impressed': Martin Edge. (Read Martin's full review of Glass and Water here).

'Glass and Water should be as essential as a pair of fins and a camera for underwater photographers. Mark shares his tremendous expertise?... ?the methodical and well-illustrated techniques will benefit anyone wishing to produce great images in the sea': Brian Skerry.
