Description

In Winning Images, multiple award-winner Paul Colley shows you how to take the step from good to great underwater images – maybe even good enough to win competitions…

‘This book will arm and inspire you to transform your underwater photographs, whatever camera you use’: Alex Mustard (from the Foreword).

The best underwater images don’t just capture the subject well, they also capture mood, emotion and atmosphere. Unlike most other underwater photography books, Winning Images with Any Underwater Camera focuses on composition and technique rather than the all-­consuming camera technology that people tend to chase first. This makes it a supremely cost-effective tool for improving images; and there is no discrimination between users of different camera systems — this truly is a book for all.

International award winner and instructor Paul Colley reveals the short cuts and shows the vital bits of artistic theory as it applies to underwater photography, grappling with composition in much greater depth than in other books. He also includes easy-to-remember reference models for underwater composition: pre-planned concepts for twelve typical underwater scenes, with the principal considerations boiled down to those essentials that will help you achieve great results, time and again.

‘This book could just be the key to unlocking a new level in your photography career… [and] there is something in this book for all U/W photographers who want to get ahead of the game in shooting images for competitions’: UWP Magazine.

  7. Wendy Cooke

    This is a lovely book to look at – I should add I was lucky enough to win a copy in a Divernet competition.. The images are clear and so far I have found a few pointers to help me improve. The only thing for me is that I am a cold water diver in the UK and felt I needed more help with images in water that is subject to back scatter or murky depths.
