How to get those cracking underwater images?
Al is crazy there is no two ways about it. The only way to get those amazing images is to get right into the action. There is a serious risk to divers being in the water with potenital man eating sharks and lots of bluebottles. The trick is to be prepared with your camera at the ready so the moment a fish appears you can get in fast to capture it all on film.
