    Quality Books About U/W Photography

    I was thinking it would be nice to sticky a thread to share quality resources for the U/W photographer. Many will be books dedicated to U/W photo, but others can be books that you've used to improve your knowledge of photography, which has translated to better pictures.

    The Underwater Photographer, 4th Ed. - Martin Edge
    By far the best book that I've read to date. No disrespect intended to the Churches or the Halls of course, but this book did more for my understanding than anything else I've read.

    The Essential Underwater Photography Manual - Denise Nielsen Tackett and Larry Tackett
    Simple explanations of complex concepts and layed out in an easy to read and easy to see format. Good read for those looking to learn the basics.

    Understanding Exposure - Bryan Peterson
    This is a book that you read, put away, and read again. To date, not everything I've read in it has 'clicked' but little by little, I'm gaining a much better understanding of the power of the correct exposure and correct lighting.


    This is a start. Feel free to add to the list and if anyone else thinks it'll be a good sticky, don't forget to mention that too so the powers that be can make it happen.

    Not specifically underwater, but an awesome book on photography:

    The Photographer's Eye, Michael Freeman, Focal Press 2007.
    Cheers, TD.
