    Great book, good price.

    Larry Gates¿ latest underwater photography book is a bit of a departure from his previous one. This, which is called ¿Advanced¿ (rather than ¿A Beginner¿s Guide¿), might sound intimidating, but it¿s written in the same comfortable style, and is accessible to people with some minimum background in SCUBA and photography. The tech-speak is minimal, and when used, is clearly explained.
    The first part of the book is a discussion of equipment (cameras, housings, strobes, and more). This is followed by a discussion imaging techniques, which like in his last book, I think is extremely well thought out and useful. So far, this is essentially an extension of the Beginner¿s Guide, with a bit more detail and some different ways of looking at things. The big difference in this text is the 20+ pages written and illustrated by seven other photographers, giving their perspectives and thoughts on a variety of topics. They are all good, but my favorites are John Yasaki because of the color he captures, Connie Z¿s subject selection, and Brian Bolton who has some great macro shots. The book ends with a very useful chapter on handling the digital images in the computer.
    A very good book, and considering the high quality color printing, a very good deal, too.
