The most significant improvements to my own underwater photography occurred during my early days in the early 1980s. It came like a 'bolt out of the blue' when one day I realised that 95% of everything I shot but disliked was composed at a downward angle. However, I also had a small selection of underwater favourites, all, without exception, were taken shooting at eye level or upwards. I felt I needed some additional, professional-based verification, so I checked out back copies of National Geographic and the best underwater photo magazines and books around at that time. I found that 90% of quality images published, and those which were winning competitions, were also composed at eye level or upwards. I didn't stop there!

I then began to look at the exceptions to shooting down. Those shots which were successful and dynamic, but worked at a downward angle.
