There may not be any other genre of underwater photography so challenging as underwater photography; therefore, we have compiled a list of just some of our favourite underwater photography books for beginners to enjoy the thrill of seeing the world beneath the water. Most people will have never tried to photograph underwater but having done so can give a photographer a new sense of appreciation for the beautiful creatures that live in the water. It is also a wonderful way to get closer to marine life and learn more about what they do. Some underwater photographs are even worth more than the land photos because there is such great detail. The quality of these photos depends on how good the photographer is, but anyone with an interest in the underwater world should take them on board as soon as possible.
The Nikon System
One of our first favourites is the Nikon System. The Nikon Ocean Colour Camera has been designed particularly for photographers who are looking for underwater photography books. It is one of the most advanced compact digital cameras on the market. In addition to being waterproof, it also has a very powerful motor and a good optical zoom; all the stuff that a professional photographer would want in their equipment. This is certainly one of the best underwater photography books that is available to suit all levels of experience from beginners to professionals.
In addition to that, we found a few other interesting underwater photography books that will help out any photographer looking for tips and advice. The Deep South publication is produced by Ocean Press and is full of underwater photographs taken by a number of different photographers over the years. It is definitely a photographer’s dream. The book offers tips on lighting, posing, and composition, which will prove beneficial to any photographer taking pictures of marine life. This is a comprehensive and excellent manual that covers almost every aspect of taking pictures of fish, plants, and other underwater subjects.
Landscape With A Fish Eye
Another underwater photography books that we found really helpful was Ansel Adams’ book, Landscape with a Fish Eye. This book covers everything there is to know about photographing nature’s beauty underwater, with detailed instructions showing you exactly how to use different filters and lenses to create beautiful images. It also provides a lot of information about photographing fish.
Tom Lowe’s Complete Digital Masterclass
Of course, we cannot forget Tom Lowe’s Complete Digital Masterclass. This was one of our very favorites as it includes not just underwater photography books but also instruction manuals for diving, snorkeling, and more. It contains numerous easy-to-follow underwater techniques and guided courses, which will enable photographers to take excellent photos. It also offers some very useful advice and guidelines for photographers who are just getting started with their photography hobby.
For anyone who wants to take better underwater photographs, we highly recommend purchasing a copy of Necessary Waterproofing Techniques by Jim Griffith. This is a well laid out, and easy to read, essential manual on how to safely take photographs in water. Some of the topics covered in the book include: Choosing an appropriate lens, the importance of ISO settings, and exposure settings. In addition, there is a table of contents so that you can look at your photographs and learn more about each section as you need it. This is a very helpful, practical guide for photographers.
