Beyond the Essentials, as the subtitle to this book implies, takes the underwater photographer to a higher level than its companion book "An Essential Guide to Digital Underwater Photography". Also authored by Michael AW and delivered in the same clear format as the "Essential Guide", this book is for the serious photographer who wishes to extend themselves and gain a fuller appreciation of the art of underwater imagery.
Not to be missed is the special section of images and tips from some of the best known underwater photographers in the World (Doug Perrine, David Doubilet, Alex Mustard, Stephin Frink).
The book has a modular approach, structured to give comprehensive descriptions about the composition and techniques for ambient light photography, macro and super-macro, wide angle imagery with and without a model and shooting with filters and HID lights. It uses detailed reviews of successful pictures from which to draw the key lessons.
In addition, there are tutorials for the digital dark room in photo editing, colour and exposure correction as well as information on digital asset management systems adopted by professional photographers and digital workflow set-up.
