As divers we can only briefly visit the visually overwhelming underwater world.
You can just enjoy the experience in the moment but for many there is an inherent
desire to document what they see because when you want to explain to non-divers
what the experience is like, a picture truly is worth more than a thousand words.
But underwater photography is not just about sharing images with others. If you
want to learn about underwater creatures you will quickly realize that trying to
remember all that you have seen would require a photographic memory. And since
most of us aren't that lucky we use a real camera instead. Others are more
interested in capturing seascapes, the dive atmosphere, wrecks, or the fun of
diving. Whatever motivates you to take up underwater photography you
need to learn the photography basics as well as the special considerations
that deal with the unique conditions of taking pictures underwater.
