They go out into the woods for a walk carrying their camera and one or two zoom lenses hoping to take that perfect shot, until the reality hits. It is not that easy.

Five suggestions for getting awesome underwater photos

1. Some things are so much more important than getting the shot. Underwater photography carries an elevated, but manageable, risk of death or serious injury and following safe diving practises must be the priority, no matter how exciting or unique the potential image may be.
