"Work on your diving skills -- it allows you to work close without spooking your subject, stirring up silt or risking damaging delicate marine life. And don't try to photograph everything on a dive; instead, focus your attention on the subjects your camera is best set up to capture."

"Do a bit of research first about the area where you are going diving and the animals likely to be encountered, then be observant, be patient, have respect for the lives you confront and do no harm.
