Description

Images Below

From the dustjacket:

Caves form a fascinating, unique yet hostile environment which presents a supreme photographic challenge – one which, all too often, aspiring underground photographers fail to overcome. Here, within the pages of Images Below, is the answer in the form of a complete manual of underground and flash photography.

Written as a clear and comprehensive how-to-do-it recipe book packed with numerous tips, there is something for newcomer and enthusiast alike. Images Below covers the basics of equipment and photographic techniques, working with single and multiple flash (and other, more unusual light sources), then continues with specialised topics such as close-up, cave life, archaeology, underwater, video and stereo photography. A final, invaluable section gives detailed advice on composition, analysing your work and identifying errors, and caring for your pictures.

Whether you are making a day-trip to your nearest cave or heading far from home on an expedition, here are checklists of equipment to take and things to consider. Nowhere else will you find such detailed advice on solving problems or pushing your creative abilities to the limit.

Images Below is lavishly illustrated with over 450 photographs, diagrams and tables – many of them in comparative sets showing mistakes and successes – which help make this the authoritative volume on underground photography. If you are a sport caver or mine explorer, whether you use an automatic compact camera or an SLR, your success rate is guaranteed to rise. Here is your major source of solutions which will stimulate new and refreshing ideas and projects. If you rise to the challenge, you cannot afford to be without Images Below.
