Equipment and specification

Sylvia used a Fujifilm FinePix F40 fd in a Fuji FinePix housing set to the scene mode of Underwater and Auto white balance. The built-in lens is 8 mm— 24 mm, which in 35 mm camera lens equivalence is 36 mm—108 mm.

Very few of the images in the gallery have been cropped and those which have, only slightly. What gives them their saturated colour is the 'underwater' scene mode. They have been downloaded to Iphoto (mac) with no other development.

The techniques for achieving images of this quality is the purpose of this entire book, but Sylvia as used this basic set up with an emphasis on:

• Shooting from below or eye level.

• Avoiding cluttered and distracting backgrounds.

• An eye for dynamic composition.

• Minimising the column of water between lens and subject.

Study them, compare them with your own efforts and consider in which areas you can improve. Remember that these photographs were taken with a basic compact camera and built-in flashgun.
