FROM THE EDITORS
With Scuba Diver Through The Lens, we are always trying to find new subjects, destinations and techniques that will inspire our readers to try something different. That was the main goal of this “water sports” issue – to expand the horizons of scuba diving wildlife underwater photographers and show them other opportunities that exist for underwater photography in the places they love to dive.
In this issue, we explore the best places that divers can not only have a great scuba trip, but also capture the beauty of the waves with surf photographs, demonstrate how adding a kayaker to a split shot can create a totally different type of image, and learn what it’s like to photograph a diver unburdened by a tank. We’ve also got advice on how to shoot with everybody’s favourite water sports camera – the GoPro.
Our hope is that, with a little guidance from the pros we’ve featured in this issue, you’ll be more willing to try your hand at this exciting form of underwater photography. And if you’re a water sports enthusiast that picked up this issue, then welcome to the wonderful world of scuba diving!
