excerpt from the article:
For the bulk of my 17 years as a diver, I didn’t pay much heed to underwater photography and in fact felt that it would detract from my love of being underwater — how wrong I was. My first “wow” moment came in Lembeh Strait when I signed up for a photography course and rented my first serious camera set-up. The potential to capture crisp, artistic shots of marine life, in the muck-diving capital of the world, was addictive. Now living St. Lucia, and with the same rig I used in Indonesia, I’ve taken every available opportunity to dive with my camera and practice. I’m by no means a professional photographer, but the lessons I’ve learned over the last few months will be useful to anyone looking to improve his or her underwater photography.
