  17. 17. Getting Started with Underwater Photography  Doesn't have to be complicated or expensive  Snorkel or Scuba? − Casual snaps or planned picture taking  Use primary camera or secondary?  Research features you think you may want − Live Preview; External flash capability; zoom review; separate RGB histograms; shutter delay; manual white balance .  Educate yourself on histograms and white balances.  Courses? Most are focused on Scuba UW Photography but can be relative to snorkelling − http://www.uwphotographyguide.com/underwater-photography-guide
