Andrea & Antonella Ferrari announce their new book...
It's out at last - the much-awaited A DIVER'S GUIDE TO THE ART OF UNDERWATER PHOTOGRAPHY is now available worldwide!
Eight highly enjoyable chapters about motivation, equipment, technique, mindframe, philosophy, artistic influences, cameras, housings, strobes, macro, wide-angle, portraits, topside surface interval photography and many, many other subjects. It's a big book - high-quality paperback, 360 pages, 300+ large photos, 25 cm x 22,5 cm, printed on glossy heavy paper.
Illustrated with a spectacular selection of some of our best shots plus image contributions by some of the world's best professional and amateur underwater photographers - including Doug Perrine, Tony Wu, Charles Hood, John Scarlett, Alex Mustard, Eric Cheng, Stephen Wong, Takako Uno, Alberto Luca Recchi, Fiona Ayerst and many, many others. A Diver's Guide to the Art of Underwater Photography strives to be completely different from all other guides currently on the market - not only it is produced on heavy glossy paper by the highest color separation and printing standards to coffee-table top-level quality, it also features scores of select spectacular images by some of the world's most influential professionals but also by many extraordinarily gifted amateurs from all over the world, reinforcing the basic them underlying it all: that taking great underwater images has less to do with camera models or technical trickery than with the "art of seeing" and the willingness to react on instinct, recognizing beauty when it appears in front of us. It strives to teach how to use one's own eyes. Each photograph - all three hundred of them! - is extensively captioned illustrating technique, equipment used, location, creative choices and final results.
Available from select retail shops, nhbs.com and on Amazon.co.uk
at EURO 37,00 / GBP 24.99 / USD 51.00.
